Cooking Recipes Catalogue

If you need to feed a bunch of kids, this is the recipe. I have had it for years and use it often for the grandchildren.

INGREDIENTS (for 6 servings):


  • In a large bowl cream, sugar, butter, and maple syrup. Add eggs and vanilla.
  • Grind the oats in a food processor to a coarse texture. Mix the dry ingredients together (except chocolate) and pour in half, add the cracker crumbs and nuts, mix well and add the rest of the dry ingredients. NOTE: You can use any one of the following kinds of nuts: peanuts, almonds, pecans, walnuts, filberts, cashews or chestnuts.
  • Add the chocolate pieces last and make a small ball and place on a ungreased cookie sheet 3 inches apart. Press the cookie flat.
  • Bake for 10 to 12 minutes at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Dough also freezes well.
