ish. the most amazing suffix ever created.
there is no exact or precise definition on the leeway it gives. ”i’ll be there at 6-ish”…the simple act of adding that “ish” on the end means that 6:07 is no longer considered late. it’s a beautiful thing, really.
so what is a healthy-ish monster cookie?? the name of this cookie always makes me think back to the cookie monster on sesame street. apparently his cookie addiction was not positively influencing the childhood obesity rates ~ or had too much of a positive correlation on these numbers, rather! so, the original cookie monster now promotes cookies to be a “sometimes” food (i call this a cheat meal). even with the -ish added onto the name of these cookies, they are still only a “sometimes” food…but definitely healthier than the original. and i can promise you, they taste just as good…maybe even better!!
the making of this recipe was inspired by my husband’s little sister who just came down from michigan to visit us for a few days. i know she could care less about eating healthy… so, i asked her what her favorite cookie was just to give me a fun recipe makeover challenge. (and also subconsciously influence her opinion of healthier food…forever!) bwahaha!
serious success. she loved them.
my original recipe made 36 cookies…a monster batch! so, i reduced it down on here to only make a dozen…do with it as you please. :)
