Please understand that I know these breakfast cookies may look a little ugly. I get it. But they taste awesome. Just a fact.

I miss Jackson SO much. I’m just leaving Austin this morning to head back home and kiss his face over and over until bites me with his little gremlin teeth. He loves to do that. And by the way, Jackson is my dog if you didn’t know who that man name was. He’s still a puppy, not yet a man. That could be a song.

So Austin was amazing. I’m going to do a summary post tomorrow about all of it, don’t you worry, but I can at least do some summarizing. I ate a lot. I hung out with awesome paleo people. Some people were annoying. I mean, it’s the paleo community. It’s full of intense hippies. You’re probably an intense hippy, aren’t you? Judging. Jk jk. I like the smell of lavender sometimes, too. Back to my point. I shopped a lot. I talked to a lot of people. I did a cooking demo. I drank barely any water. I spoke on a panel that I so did not want to speak on. I had more dairy then I’ve had in the entire year. I laughed so hard I cried. Twice. I packed my bag home with 4 chocolate bars. I went to an awesome CrossFit gym and did a super painful workout. I sweated into my eyes while working out. And I stayed in a super fun condo with 7 other people. The coffee table was a giant drum. No lie.

I’m so ready to be home. I made the bf send me multiple pictures every day of the puppy. He’s growing up so fast and I’m missing it all! I was hoping that by the time I got home, he would be perfectly potty trained. But it doesn’t look like it’s going to turn out like that. I think we will still have to work at it. Poor kid. He just likes to be independent and prove that independence through urinating where he pleases. That just ain’t gon’ work.

Speaking of ain’t gon’ work, I’m a bit annoyed with United Airlines right now. I usually stick with them because they tend to almost always have wi-fi, their flights have always been on time with me, and they have seemed to always have a decent amount of space in their planes. I was wrong. This time around, I was forced on one of their United Express planes that looks like it should be taking me from Denver to Colorado Springs, instead of all the way to Austin. They are so small that only a purse fits in the bin overhead and you can literally smell the breath of the person sitting next to you. And based on my experience on this trip, these little dinky planes do not tend to be on time. I’ve never really had a flight be late with United and then once I was lucky enough to ride on the United Express, all my flights were late. I feel like this happens because they are the little, nerdy planes so they get pushed around by the bigger ones and can only come out to play when all the bigs ones are gone. Well you know what United Express? You need to pull up your big boy pants and get your sh*t together. Meaning get rid of those planes so I can make it on time to my destination. Maybe it’s just time to pick a new airline. What do you think? What’s your favorite airline to fly?

    I just found your blog and I love it! I totally get your sense of humor, Juli.
    I had a quick comment about coconut sugar. I don’t know if this is common knowledge, but once a coconut tree gets tapped for the sap for coconut sugar, it will never again produce coconuts.

    I have been following the articles at the Tropical Traditions website and they have stated that there is a huge demand for all things coconut and they can be made except for the sugar if the trees are allowed to only produce coconuts. That means when more of us buy coconut sugar, more trees are forever stopped from making our favorite coconut oils, creams, milks, flakes, etcetera.

    Let’s spread the word about this and keep our coconuts!

    Thanks Juli!

      damn, thanks so much for the information!! i’ve been using more maple sugar nowadays so i’ll start sharing that more with my new recipes

  2. Jaclyn says:

    This was super good. I substituted applesauce in place of coconut oil cus that’s what I had, and did half the amount of coconut sugar (great info above on coconut sugar, I’m glad to be made aware!) thanks again!!! Yuuummmmmmmm

    I don’t know what happened, but my dough was like soup. The only variable was that I doubled the recipe, I doubled the flour again, and still soupy. I think 1 cup of oil for this recipe is what killed it, or maybe the eggs should be whisked til stiff?

    How is the texture of these cookies? I am looking to make these for my 15 month old who has a lot of food allergies. Are they soft enough for toddlers to chew?

    Thank you for this! My son and I were talking this morning about a healthy cookie and I said “maybe a carrot cake cookie?”, he agreed and then boom! The interweb served me up a recipe from one of my favorites! They are nice, not too sweet treat, thank you Juli!

    You’ve had 4 years to test this recipe or remove it from your site. This recipe does NOT work. It is one big oily goo and it tastes DISGUSTING. It has NO flavor and it’s stupid sweet. The batter isn’t dry at all – it has more oil in it than anything else – it’s ridiculous. I read and reread the ingredients and instructions to make sure I didn’t do something wrong, but no – the recipe just doesn’t work. There’s nothing to give it any flavor. It’s just sugar and oil. DISGUSTING! It makes me so mad because these ingredients are expensive and now I just have to throw previously perfectly good food away. ARRRGH!

    1. juli says:
