Kitchen Sink Cookies

This one cookies isn’t on the healthy list . I supposed you can make it as healthy as you can since it is homemade . I think anything that you make yourself , and you know what ingredients you put in to your cooked / baked goods , should be considered healthy ,right ?

So , before this year i have never heard of kitchen sink cookies . Short story , i became friends with this older gentleman from the gym , honestly people like him inspired a lot of us younger people . He’s in his mid 80’s and still working out . One morning he brought me this ‘kitchen sink cookies’ he had bought from local bakery . And i thought it was interesting .. why would they call it kitchen sink ? I assumed because there were so many ingredients in there ? Somewhat like Minestrone .. whatever you have left in the fridge , you make soup from it ?

I supposed i was right , there was raisins , oats , coconut flakes , chocolate chip in this cookies . Basically anything i can think of . My family loves it ( is there anything they don’t like ? LOL ) , my husband thinks this is really good especially since it’s soft and chewy in the middle . I thought it was okay .. i prefer cookies that are crunchy . Our teenager son also like that , he loves soft and chewy cookies . I guess since i am the only one who prefers crunchy cookies , i normally bake mine few minutes longer .

As long as you have the ingredients for the dough , but don’t have all coconut , raisins , chocolate , oats , don’t worry , just skip it and move along . Here goes the recipe
