Night before last, no sleep. Last night sleep. Now Bigfoot turn again for awake. Bedtime 212. Correction. 1.5 hours later: 205. Pffft. Spouse change site earlier in day. It legit.
So tired. Want read novel, snuggle into duvet. But if bed, sure fall asleep/not really read/definitely need alarm clock, phone not found. Bigfoot Spouse already begin lightly snore. Remember tooth. Bigfoot Spouse leave tooth upon so helpful note kitchen counter.—>
Dig through Spouse pants pockets, find $Tooth Fairy for Jack. Everyone asleep, slow, deep breath. Conduct tooth/cash exchange. Jack no tooth under pillow—tooth in envelope label “TOOTH,” place under little fan beside bed. All business. Bigfoot tuck tooth into bathrobe pocket for make friends used test strips.
It time test again yet? No. Tell self: Be patient. Be awake. This is it! This is life! The one you get! Tell self: as soon as BG closer 100 than 200, permission for bed. Example: 140 thank you goodnight. Zzzzzz.
Now bake cookies, listen Caitlin Moran Fresh Air. (Ha!) Breakfast cookies. Bigfoot make same old recipe, probably mention before: Vegan Cowboys. Recipe at bottom. Basically wet granola + chocolate chips + bake in clump. Addictive. One million carbs.
Look Bonni/Martha S. Breakfast cookies. Bonni + Skylands lighting inspire Bigfoot…Vegan Cowboy bowl just sit there: add 1/4 cup ground flax. Then think, why not more? Add more. Then: why not a little more? Add more. Now one batch on cooling rack. Look nice, but smell slightly ass.
Sad realize: room temperature insulin not miracle cure Bigfoot hang heart on. Even though room temperature insulin, still kind of fizzy (specks?) by end Day 2. Also still high. Also low. However, not high/low in pattern. Not possible mastermind improvement plan.
Makes about 4 dozen, with 9g CHO per cookie.
1 1/4 cups rolled oats
1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
1 cup chopped walnuts (chopped very fine for kids who don’t like nuts because they won’t see them)
1 cup chocolate chips
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup coconut oil/grapeseed oil/what have you
1/2 cup maple syrup
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 350 F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Set aside.
In a large bowl, whisk together oats, flour, nuts, chips, salt, and baking soda. In a smaller bowl, whisk together the wet ingredients. Stir into oat mixture until everything is evenly moistened. Let rest for a few minutes. Do not add in a huge amount of ground flax if you dislike ass-smell cookies.
Use a gelato scoop (size #70) to make walnut-sized balls. You might choose to pat down the balls with damp fingers for a more puckish than lumpish cookie shape.
Bake in the center of the oven until lightly browned, about 15 minutes. Transfer the entire parchment paper to a cooling rack. Let cool completely before removing or they will crumble apart.
NOTE: Store in fridge or freezer. NOTE: These don’t taste good while warm. Wait to judge until cool.

- Flax/ass-smell issue: the cookies are DELICIOUS despite the flax. The smell went away as they cooled.
- 4 cookie breakfast + milky tea; bolused for 40g CHO; NO SPIKE.
- Cookies forever!
