Cinnamon coffee cake crumb cookies


Yup. No Surprise I am that person that if the crumble off the top of the coffee cake. I mean you can't falt me it's just so tasty. I had no reason to make these other than the fact that I like to bake and came across the recipe on Instagram.....so of course why not take it and make a Betty spin on it? Theoriginal    recipe has a few less ingredients and uses a mini muffin tin. Next time I might use or try mini muffin tin because these cookies do not spread out at all and I think it would give the crumble affect more. Also be sure not to overcook because then they come to dry! Enjoy! 

Ingredients


  • 1 stick of unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 1/3 cups white wheat flour (or ap- don't use whole wheat will be too dry) 
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla 
  • 3 tablespoons of honey
  • 1 teaspoon of cinnamon 
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup old fashioned rolled oats

Directions: 

  1. 1. Preheat oven to 350 F and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. 
  2. 2. Place butter, vanilla, honey and sugar in mixer and combine. 
  3. 3. Add in flour, cinnamon and oats.  Mix together batter comes together (crumbs might form--hint the name!).
  4. 4. Roll into balls and place on prepared cookie sheet. 

  5. 5. Bake for 10-15 minutes. Don't over cook! They will still be lighter in color. No eggs to worry about so no salmonella if undercooked :) 

  6. 6. Remove from cookie sheet and cool on a cooling rack or enjoy right away! (Pairs well with some vanillia ice cream and topped with some cinnamon and possibly some peanut butter :) ) 
  7. Some of these were a bit over cooked- that's ok though just nuke them and create a ice cream sundae:)
