Cinnamon Snickerdoodle Chocolate Chunk Oatmeal Cookies, in collaboration with Chino Valley Ranchers

You gals, I was SO bummed when I pulled these cookies out of the oven. I’ve failed at cookies over 50 times so seeing these as flat as they were made me feel defeated yet again. 🥺😫 Instead of tossing right away I decided to let them cool so I could at least have a bite. First bite sent my tastebuds straight to a bakery. #whatrobinbakes lives on!

Cinnamon Snickerdoodle Chocolate Chunk Oatmeal Cookies (Recipe adapted from @themindfulhapa’s PB Oatmeal Chocolate Chunk Cookies):

  • 1 cup cinnamon snickerdoodle cashew almond butter
  • 1 egg, Chino Valley Ranchers soy free, organic, & free range
  • 2/3 cup coconut sugar
  • 1 tbsp melted coconut oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ½ cup rolled GF oats 
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • Half a chocolate bar of choice
  • 1 scoop collagen peptides (optional)
  • Pink himalayan sea salt flakes to top

Directions:

  •  Preheat oven to 350F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper
  • Using a hand mixer, mix together cinnamon snickerdoodle cashew almond butter, coconut sugar, coconut oil, and collagen peptides. Add the eggs and vanilla extract, mix again.
  • Stir in the remaining dry ingredients: rolled oats, baking soda, sea salt (not the flakes!), and chopped dark chocolate bar.
  • Use an ice cream scoop to form equal size balls, place on cookie sheet, and slightly press down so they are flat.
  • Bake in the oven for 8-10 minutes or until cookies have started to brown.

PS: I took this photo myself using a tripod. I held one of the legs between my teeth and the other two were resting on my belly. That was a sight to see for sure. 😂👋🏻 #doitforthegram

Scroll through my feed and you’ll see a similar pattern of breakfast and baked goods, aka brown food. Not sure how this happened but all I know is that lookin at my feed I start to drool so I’m not mad about it! Partnering with my friends over at Chino Valley Ranchers this morning to give you this sweet and savory french toast. Made with Chino Valley Ranchers cage free egg whites and topped with an organic, soy free, and free range drippy egg. There couldn’t be a more “Robiny” meal than this right here.

Sweet and savory french toast: (makes two servings)

  • Four slices your favorite bread
  • Egg wash (6 tbsps Chino Valley Ranchers cage free egg whites, 1/4 cup nut milk, and cinnamon)
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 2 Chino Valley Ranchers organic soy free free range eggs
  • “Everything but that bagel” seasoning

Directions:

  • Whisk egg wash ingredients together in a shallow bowl.
  • Dip each bread slice into the egg wash, coating each side.
  • Place on a hot skillet sprayed with non stick cooking spray and cook until desired crispness on both sides.
  • While french toast is cooking, fry whole eggs on a skillet and season with “everything but the bagel seasoning”.
  • Place french toast onto two plates, top each with a fried egg, and drizzle with syrup.
