Cookies Without A Name

My friends, the power of suggestion is strong –  sometimes all it takes is the mere mentioning of a word and a craving strikes.   When someone casually suggested making cookies, that was all the motivation I needed to realize that I did, in fact, NEED to bake me some cookies ASAP.  Since it’s almost Cookie Friday, I figured I could justify it.

However, never one to make just a basic chocolate chip cookie, I decided to whip up a batch using oil instead of butter (I know! I like to keep you on your toes), oatmeal, wheat germ, flaxseed, pecans, pumpkin seeds, coconut, chocolate chips, cinnamon, and craisins.  They turned out fabulous, and – dare I say it? – healthy(ier).

Here’s the problem – these cookies need a name.  This is where you come in – I will bake something fabulous for the person who comes up with the most creative name for these babies.   Feel free to come up with as many names as you can think of…let the bidding begin!

What’ll it be?

I just got an email announcing the 12 Days of Sharing (Christmas?) at Starbucks.  Naturally, this made me want to do a giveaway on my blog.  Because really, what does Starbucks have that I don’t?  Granted, I may not be able to provide lattes-on-demand but I can do something fun.   So, the first person to comment and correctly guess what I made out of the ingredients displayed in this picture will win something delicious from yours truly (actual item to be determined by geographical proximity of the winner and myself).

Happy guessing!

P.S. It would appear that there is one ingredient missing from the photograph…oops! This ingredient can either be homemade or purchased in the frozen aisle of the grocery store, and contains lots of butter.  Now do you know?
