I heard everyone talking about Rocky Mountain cookies a while back, but I’d never heard of them before. Seriously, everywhere I go someone is saying something about making these. So, the other night a scout group was doing service and needed some cookies so I whipped up a batch of these. It’s a little bit of everything and totally worth it.
What Is The Difference Between Old Fashioned Oats and Quick Oats?
Old fashioned oats are rolled whole-grain oat kernels.
Quick oats are made by first cutting the oat kernel into small pieces, before being rolled.
Quick oats absorb water better than old fashioned oats.
Can You Substitute Quick Oats for Old Fashioned?
For baking quick oats can be used in place of old fashioned oats.
But, if a recipe calls for quick oats, you may not get the same results with old fashioned oats.
How Long Will Cookies Keep?
Freshly baked cookies will last for about 2-3 weeks at room temperature.
Crisp cookies should be stored loosely covered.
Soft, moist cookies should be stored in an air tight container or a zip lock bag.

- 4 eggs
- 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup coconut
- 3/4 cup nuts (if you are into that sort of thing)
- powdered sugar
- Preheat oven to 350°.
- Mix all ingredients, except powdered sugar.

These are great warm, but I prefer to wait until they cool, but hey sometimes you just can't resist.
