Oatmeal Trail Mix Cookies

By Danette Randall
So, last week I gave you a “healthy” muffin recipe. I must say, I got a great response and decided I shall become the Muffin Man, I mean the Muffin Woman. I already have a muffin top, so I have a jump-start. Come on, that’s funny.

I do still have a gluten-free dessert, as promised, but I had way too many requests for a jumbo packed cookie that would give the sustenance and energy one needs while shredding a mountain. Oh, and it had to be able to fit nicely in ski and snowboard pants without crumbling. Wow, can I do it? I am making Oatmeal Trail Mix Cookies. Awesomely rad, dude. Do skiers talk like that these days, or is that just the snowboarders? Perhaps I’m just having flashbacks of Dude Where’s My Car, because, well, who doesn’t?

Anyway, these cookies are so delicious, jam-packed full of goodness, but not so much that all the flavors cancel each other out. We are putting in dark chocolate chips, black walnuts, coconut, dry roasted peanuts, oatmeal and more. Wasn’t that nice to give you something to do with your leftover oatmeal from last week’s muffins? I’m always thinking about ya.

I can imagine chomping on one of these beauties while riding up the gondola. What a day, gorgeous scenery, tasty treats and energy in overflow. Please don’t fall off the gondola in your excitement, as I don’t need that hanging over my head.

I know I won’t be falling out — I myself am a lodger. I will enjoy my Trail cookies by the fire in the lodge, dressed in all the gear, of course. I like to think I went down the mountain, or maybe I like others to think I went down the mountain.

All I know is, whether you are shredding (I love that word, by the way) or enjoying your cookie by the fire, you will have the same flavor explosion and just want to exclaim, “Dude, Where’s My Cookie?” Maybe you will, maybe you won’t, but happy trails either way.

Now follow the recipe, put some love into it and invite me over when it’s done.

Before you start: You can really customize the extras in this to suit your tastes. Use semi-sweet, milk or white chocolate if you prefer. You can combine a few if you like. Make sure to use quick-cooking oats. I’m using dark brown sugar, but light works fine.

Oatmeal Trail Mix Cookies

1 3/4 cups flour 1 tsp. cinnamon 1/2 tsp. baking soda 1/4 tsp. salt 2 cups oatmeal (quick-cooking oats) 1 cup canola oil 1 cup brown sugar 1 tsp. vanilla 2 eggs (lightly beaten) 1 cup dark chocolate chips (you can use semi-sweet, milk or white) 3/4 cup sweetened coconut flakes 1/2 cup chopped dry roasted peanuts 3/4 cup black walnuts (you can use regular walnuts)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In large bowl, combine flour, cinnamon, baking soda, salt and oatmeal. Stir and set aside.

In medium bowl, mix canola oil, brown sugar and vanilla. Mix in lightly beaten eggs.

Add wet mixture into dry mixture, stir until dough is formed. Fold in chocolate chips, coconut, peanuts and walnuts.

Roll tablespoons of dough into balls and place on cookie sheet.

Bake for 10–12 minutes until cookies are set and tops are starting to brown. Place cookies on rack or waxed paper and let cool. Enjoy!

How Can a White Paper Become a More Effective Persuasion Tool The science of persuasion has moved to a new level of intrigue as researchers attempt to discover which kinds of arguments or information help buyers make purchasing decisions. This article focuses on recent findings in this area and suggests how the research could apply to the domain of white papers. One research team developed a series of experiments for products that ranged from cell Basketball Nike Lebron phones to bicycles to toothpaste to portable DVD players to medicine. In half the tests, consumers were presented with only positive information. In the other half, consumers were given both pros and cons. Here are a few of the discoveries: Both one sided and two sided messages can increase positive attitudes toward a product. Two sided messages are more effective at instilling consumers with confidence in that attitude. People who were exposed to both pros and cons indicated a greater intention to buy than those exposed only to pros even though both groups had developed positive attitudes toward the product. Another research team seemingly concurred that people who only see the positive information know consciously that they still need to come up with and analyze the drawbacks of a given decision. In contrast, people who are exposed to both the pros and cons have the impression that the information is complete. Therefore, they don't need to put forth the effort to generate and then weigh out the cons before they can make a good decision. Somebody has already done that for them!What This Research Could Mean for White PapersFor technical products and services, it could be argued that white papers and similar technical briefs offer a more objective way to help people make technology based buying decisions than other types Nike Nike Free Run 3 Zoom KD 6 Kids of sales literature. Some people, however, feel that white papers often fall short of their potential. The topics are uninteresting, the titles are boring, and the content can appear either too superficial or too dull. Instead, technologists need the tools to help them present business cases to other stakeholders within the organization. The group needs to make educated and informed decisions, without having to wade through any hype. So, how can a white paper do a better job of educating and persuading without depending on a sales pitch? Similar to the idea of presenting pros and cons, a white paper can help your audiences prescreen themselves to determine how likely they are to succeed with your offerings. Using this approach, the white paper aims to reduce a customer's risk of failure by ensuring that potential buyers Nike Free Run 3 satisfy certain basic prerequisites.  This is very different from attempting to Nike Free Run 5.0 V2 be persuasive in Nike Free 5.0 V6 the typical sense by aiming to attract anyone you can win over. Rather than trying to convince everyone to buy, you're trying to convince people NOT to buy if they're not good candidates for your Sneaker Online wares. Your offerings will be ideal for the right parties. But how will people know whether their needs are a good fit? You aid these people by stating the minimum requirements for using your offerings, Nike Air Max 2010 Mens including the combinations of products, services, and infrastructures you will and will not support. For a technology based product, the minimum infrastructure might entail high end computing equipment, digital wiring, Internet connectivity, high bandwidth, or other factors. Explicitly stating these types of parameters up front is a common practice in a variety of industries, especially to realistically constrain the obligations of warranties. Your white paper can therefore explain the product's Nike Free 4.0 V3 features, benefits, and parameters in such a way as to clearly assert: "Please buy this product only Nike Air Max 90 II Camouflage Mens if you meet the prerequisites! If the shoes do not fit, we can't be responsible if they hurt your feet!" In this mode, you are using an approach that looks out for everyone's best interests. She helps people "discover and recover" the profits their businesses may be losing every day through overlooked performance potential.
