Treasure Cookies

So these cookies are weird lets just start with that, they have only 1/2 a cup of flour, no sugar, no eggs and no vanilla extract! What kind of cookies are these? I had to make them and find out if they are good. I found the recipe on They were extremely easy to make. I made a few changes to the recipe and I think they turned out great!

My inspiration behind the few changes that I made were that I wanted them to taste like the Caramel DeLite girl scout cookies, and I think the tastes are there. Great new cookie to add to the bank of recipes.

Treasure Cookies

1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
1/2 cup flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 14oz can sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 1/3 cups flaked coconut
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup chopped pecans
1/4 cup toffee bits

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

First you want to toast the pecans and the coconut, just to deepen the flavors of each. Make sure to not burn either one they should just start turning brown and they will each start to smell once they are ready.

Beat the butter and the condensed milk together until smooth. Add the baking powder, graham crackers and flour, beat until smooth. Add in the toasted pecans and coconut, then the chocolate chips and the toffee bits

Stir to combine, spoon onto a baking sheet and cook for 9-11 minutes. I got 21 bigger cookies from this batch.

These will be going off to the office as a reward for all the hard work that has been going on lately. It is not usually this crazy in the office but times are changing and big things have been happening, so everyone has been working very hard. It is time to reward everyone. :)

Everyone at work loved them, they were a bit hit. So next time you need something a little different make these and they will be enjoyed by all!

No eggs? No sugar? I too would think that was odd. But in a way, they sound delicious and your photos sure make them LOOK delicious.

Just came across your blog today for the first time and am enjoying your posts. The turkey meatballs recipe is one I'm going to make soon.
