IMG_9050

How can a cookie named after something so ugly taste so damn good?

Ingredients

1 cup butter, softened

1 cup white sugar

1 cup brown sugar

2 eggs

1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1 1/2 cups rolled oats

1 cup wheat germ

1 cup all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon salt

1 cup flaked coconut

1 cup sliced almonds or walnuts or a mixture of both

1 cup chopped pitted dates

Directions

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.

In a large bowl, cream together the butter, white sugar and brown sugar until smooth. Beat in the eggs, one at a time then stir in the vanilla.

In a separate bowl, combine the oats, wheat germ, flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Stir the dry ingredients into the creamed mixture. Finally, mix in the coconut, nuts, and dates. Drop by rounded spoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets.

Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for a couple minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
