I made these one afternoon for a 'bring a snack' style mini potluck with some mommy friends at Silly Goose. They went over well with both kids and parents, which surprised me because I didn't think the kids would be into it.
People ask me all the time how I am able to bake with 3 littles running around and the simple answer is to imclude them! Today, only my littlest little was interested in baking and she took FOREVER to pluck out all the arils! Amazing fun for her and we were able to be side by side in the kitchen the whole time just chatting about whatever her hilarious 3 year old brain came up with!
1/2 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/4 cup all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup old fashioned oats
1 cup white chocolate chunks
1 cup pomegranate arils
Preheat your oven to 375 and line your cookie sheet with parchment paper.
Cream the butter and sugar together, then add egg and vanilla extact. Keep mixing!
In another bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Little by little add the dry to the wet while mixing.
Now, gently stir in the oats and white chocolate (chips or chunks, you pick). The original recipe said to roll the dough into balls and poke 6-8 arils into each one. Needless to say, this got tedious. So I stirred the arils into the batter and then rolled it into balls. I baked them for about 10 minutes.
