Hey guys, guess what? I finally created a Facebook page for Little Bitty Bakes! You should definitely “like” me if you’re a FB user. I literally have no idea what I’m doing over there but I promise lots of talk of sugary deliciousness. 😉
What if I told you only 5 ingredients stand between you and these super duper soft cookies?
…it’s true! Go grab a spice cake mix and a cup of Apple Cinnamon Chobani, I bet you have the other 3 in your kitchen already!
After a little break from the Greek yogurt recipes, I’m getting right back into the swing of things. I’ve been having so much fun experimenting with Chobani’s newest Greek yogurt flavors in my recipes, specifically the apple cinnamon flavor. In high school, I loooooved a different brand’s apple cinnamon yogurt that sadly is now discontinued. I’m going to be honest with you, it took me three cups of the new Apple Cinnamon CHO to like it. It has a much more tart flavor than the apple cinnamon yogurt I used to eat, which just took some getting used to. A few weeks later and it’s one of my favorites!
Change can be tough, but it isn’t always bad. Life lessons through yogurt eating. 😉
If you spend a little time in my Recipe Index — which I desperately need to update — you know I’m all for recipe shortcuts. I love baking from scratch, but a busy, active lifestyle doesn’t always allow for that. OK, who am I kidding, I waste 99% of my time running, baking and reading blogs. No matter what the reason, when things gets busy, don’t stop baking, just grab a cake mix and an apple cinnamon Cho and make these apple cinnamon oatmeal spice cookies. 🙂
These cookies couldn’t be more simple to make, and the good news is you sacrifice zero taste for that convenience. These are one of the softest cookies I’ve ever made, perfectly spiced with a bit of chewiness from the oats. And since the recipe uses mostly good-for-you ingredients (forget about the cake mix…) I give you permission to go ahead and eat these cookies for breakfast. I did it myself 🙂 And if you really want to get wild and crazy, crumble one up over a cup of Apple Cinnamon Cho!
