  • 2 cups butter, softened
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 cups brown sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 3 1/2 cups flour ( white or wheat)
  • 1/2 cup protein powder (optional)
  • 5 cups oatmeal (any kind)

  • chocolate chips (optional)
  • raw hulled pumpkin seeds (optional)
  • dried cranberries (optional)
  • shredded coconut (optional)
  • nuts (optional)
  • raisins (optional)
  • currants (optional)
    Cream together
  1. cups butter, softened, 2 cups sugar, 2 cups brown sugar, 4 eggs, 1 tsp. vanilla Mix until light and fluffy.
  2. Add in 3 1/2 cups flour ( white or wheat), 1/2 cup protein powder (optional) 5 cups oatmeal (any kind), If your oatmeal is really course you may want to pulse it in the food processor.
  3. Add pinch salt, 2 tsp. baking powder, 2 tsp. baking soda
  4. Hand mix in 3 ot the "everything ingredients" . I call them this because I would use just what I had on hand and it varied daily. Combined they should be about 3 cups. chocolate chips, raw hulled pumpkin seeds, dried cranberries, shredded coconut, nuts, raisins, currants, etc. For example one of my favorite combinations is shredded coconut,raw pumpkin seeds,and dried cranberries
  5. Bake
  6. Press this into a ungreased 8x12" baking dish. Bake at 350 degrees for approx 30 minutes. Test center to see if cooked by inserting a knife, if it comes out clean it is done. You can then cut the desired protion size!
  7. If you would like to make cookies I make them golf ball size about 2" apart on an ungreased cookie sheet and bake for 5-6 minutes at 350 degrees.
