Icon Coffee-dunking Oatmeal Cookies

Icon Coffee-dunking Oatmeal Cookies

These aren’t your grandmother’s oatmeal cookies.

When I bake cookies I usually try to use something that I’m just about out of, so I can get rid of the container. Tonight I noticed that I have what appears to be three cups of oatmeal left in the oatmeal cylinder, so, why not try some oatmeal cookies – I thought.

It’s 15 degrees out; I’m hungry and need something to dunk into milk or coffee. Not one to follow the recipe, I’ve used poetic license, thus inventing Icon Coffee-dunking Oatmeal Cookies.

Here goes.

Ever hear of an Icon muffin? You have now - it goes well with a cup of coffee

Here’s an easy muffin that goes with the holidays and coffee, too.

It’s the Icon’s variation of Spice Chocolate Muffins from a cookbook called “Muffins.” We toned down the sugar and chocolate chips from the original recipe and it still creates pretty sweet muffins.

This recipe made 14 large muffins.
