date butterscotch oatmeal cookies

For whatever odd reason, I decided to make cookies tonight.  I really did not have the time or energy but ... oh well!  My boss at work brought back date vanilla chip oatmeal cookies from his last boondogle.  They called it a class but it was in Death Valley, one of my favorite places.  Boondogle.  

I made these with both white chocolate and butterscotch chips.  We decided we liked the butterscotch best even if I think both are good.  These are simple simple.  I based them on an old Laurel's Kitchen recipe.  They would be great in a lunch box.  Or for breakfast with tea.

date butterscotch oatmeal cookies

1/4 cup butter

1/3 cup brown sugar

2 egg yolks (because I needed to use them, equivalent to about one medium egg)

1 teaspoon vanilla

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup almond flour

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 cup pecan meal

3/4 cup oat flour (which was supposed to be a quick oat but we will not discuss small hands and the Ninja.  How long can that machine run?)

16 dates, chopped up into small pieces

1/2 cup butterscotch chips.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.

Cream the butter and sugar together.  Mix in the egg and vanilla.  Mix in the salt, baking soda and all the flours.  If you actually have quick oats, mix them in here.  Mix in the chips.  Bake 10 to 12 minutes, or until golden.

Might definitely be breakfast.....
