Y’all. I have a confession. Nicole over at I Heart Food sent these to me in our Christmas box exchange. Christmas. And what month are we in?? It took me until February to make these minty wonders. Now that is a confession of a food blogger. Sometimes we cook, take pics and save. And that is just what I did here. 😉 Mint. Green. Goes perfect with my green / Irish theme for Irish American Heritage Month. Right?
hahah 🙂 So, Nicole sent me this as a mason jar recipe. It had a cute little bow and the instructions were tacked on. Kiddo and I had a lot of fun making – and eating – these. Now, if you have been following me for any length of time you know my baking skills for desserts is….well…it’s less than stellar. I mean, did you see that Cotton Candy Cake? I still laugh about that. There are quite a few desserts that didn’t quite bake right here within my pages.
That’s ok. I’m only human and most of the time even though they don’t look pretty, kiddo and hubs will still eat them.
Imagine my surprise when I saw how chewy and wonderful these cookies turned out.
I didn’t get many photos because we were eating them – ALL!
I loved the combination of the mint with the oatmeal. These were total #nomnom.

These sound so yum! Mint and chocolate is an awesome combo 🙂
These look delicious! I want to try them soon (and what a great gift the jar would make!)

These look really yummy. I think mint and chocolate go great together. They would be perfect with a nice glass of milk or coffee.

You put two of my favorites into this! I love mint and chocolate. YUM!
My son is the lone eater of mint chocolate in our house. He would love for me to make these!`

These look delicious. I love the way you packaged them inside a jar. It would make the perfect gift.

Unfortunatly my family wouldn’t eat these. I’d have to eat them all!
I love mason jar recipes and this one looks SO good! Thanks for sharing!
Chrysa Duran says
Goodnss I love jar mixes! This would be a good one to give family and friends. I’ll need to make a batch for us, too!
That’s a great looking mix right there. I’d love to have that around for when guests are coming over.
Love your jar of goodness. I’ve never had minted chocolate oat cookies but it sounds like a delicious twist on chocolate chip or oatmeal.
Jennifer E. says
Mint and chocolate are divine together, but I’ve never added oatmeal to the mix. Totally yummy sounding!
They were really good!
Veronica - Casa Vilora Interiors says
very good. I am sure they are yummy. And probably really healthy too
Or at least, a little healthy with it not being a prepackaged mix and the addition of oats. LOL
Jocelyn McGaffic says
Not a big fan of oat cookies, but her gift presentation is beautiful!
i know a couple kids that would love these cookies. They look easy enough to make too
