Have You Tried Mookies?
Last year my youngest asked me to make mookies. I honestly did not know what he was talking about. He said they were ‘muffin-cookies‘. So I looked for a recipe and found this one online.
Turns out mookies (a.k.a. ‘muffin tops’) are delicious! We’ve been making them ever since. They’re great add-ins to lunches and after school snacks.
The following recipe was adapted from food.com
- Prep time: 5 minutes
- Baking time: 20 minutes
- Servings: 20 mookies
1 cup melted unsalted butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
3 cups rolled oats

Make these simple changes to easily turn your mookies into Wookies!
1. Reduce the amount of flour to 3/4 cup
2. Add 1/4 cup cocoa powder
3. Substitute the raisins with 1/2 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips
Freeze & store
- You can freeze mookies raw and bake them later.
- You can bake mookies, then freeze them (up to 3 weeks).
If baked, then frozen, simply microwave them for 20 seconds and voilà… tasty as the day they came out of the oven.
