NOTHING quite says #Monday during #MercuryRetrograde like Facebook, Instagram and Facebook Messenger ALL going down at the same time. Here's the perfect recipe to turn that frown upside-down...and make you feel productive -- all on the company dime!
I say, "why stress" when there are plenty of other things to do to fill that gap in time (that for some in social media - felt like an eternity)? I mean how often do we find ourselves with actual FREE time?? What would you rather be doing...posting on Twitter to it's disgruntled algorithm?? Let's use some of that "working from home" dinero. Get that Brian Anthony™ branded apron on and LET'S BAKE! (If there is not one posted to the store yet -- there will be soon!)
Behold my recipe for "Facebook Crash Cookies" - otherwise known as, "Oatmeal, Chocolate Chip, Peanut Butter, Coconut and Cocktail Nut Cookies".
These are not figure-friendly.
These have TONS of gluten.
The batch has 2 sticks of butter in it. INGREDIENTS
▢ 1 cup all-purpose flour 120g
▢ 1/2 tsp baking soda 3g
▢ 1/2 tsp salt 5g
▢ 1/2 cup salted butter room temperature, 113g
▢ 1/3 cup granulated sugar 65g
▢ 2/3 cup light-brown sugar 140g, packed
▢ 2 tsp pure vanilla extract 10mL
▢ 1 large egg
▢ 1 1/2 cups rolled oats 135g
▢ 1 cup SALTED cocktail nuts rough chopped.
▢ 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips 150g
In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour and baking soda; set aside.
Combine the butter with both sugars and whised egg and beat on medium speed until light and fluffy.
Add flour mixture; mix until almost combined.
Stir in the oats and chocolate chips. Chill dough for one hour (if you can wait).
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Use a small ice cream scooper (two tablespoons) to Drop heaping tablespoon-size balls of dough about 2 inches apart on baking sheets lined with parchment paper.
Place chocolate chips and cocktail nuts in the gaps on the top of the cookie for extra flavor, crunch, and saltiness.
Bake until cookies are golden around the edges, but still soft in the center, 8 to 10 minutes depending no your oven.
Remove from oven, and let cool on baking sheet 1 to 2 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack, and let cool completely.
