Today, we walked down to Albertson’s to pick up toothpaste. I had noticed in their weekly ad, that toothpaste was on sale for $1. In addition, I had clipped a 50 cents off coupon from the Sunday paper. So, after exploring the toothpaste section for a variety that didn’t include artificial food coloring, we took it to the cashier, and paid our 50 cents!
Plus, we got in a nice morning walk, and enjoyed the fresh air and sunshine (and didn’t have to pay for gas for the car!).
When we got home, I spent the afternoon folding loads of laundry, and baking breadsticks and cookies.
1/2 cup non-hydrogenated shortening (coconut oil could probably be substituted here)
1 cup flour
1/4 cup butter, softened
1 tsp baking soda
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 1/2 cups oat flour
3/4 cup flaked coconut (unsweetened)
1 tsp vanilla
Preheat oven to 350*. Grease cookie sheet. Beat shortening, butter, and sugar in bowl until smooth and creamy. Add egg and vanilla; beat well. Combine flour and baking soda. Add to butter mixture; mix well. Stir in oat flour and coconut until well combined. Drop by level tablespoon onto prepared cookie sheet. Bake 8-10 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool on rack.
