Oh My, Montana Whoppers!

in All Posts

I fulfilled two Things I Need to Do More Often tonight!


First, I posted an Operation Beautiful note per TINTDMO #11:


I wore my hair in a new style per TINTDMO #9…. side pigtail!   Maybe I’ll be more adventurous with my hair from now on!  It wasn’t SO scary.


Continuing Breakfast Day, I had an omelette with spinach and sun-dried tomatoes and a few Everything Crackers for dinner:


These were great!


For dessert, I made Montana Whoppers, a recipe by Michelle.  After Meghann baked them earlier in the week, I have NOT been able to stop thinking about them!  I hardly ever bake in the middle of the week, but this was totally worth the effort.


I replaced some of the peanut butter with Barney Butter almond butter (I’m not a huge PB-cookie person) and instead of chocolate chips, I mixed in sweetened coconut.


Highly recommend these cookies!  I am bringing these cookies to the running group tomorrow AM to give some away.  🙂


Snacks included a crushed Kashi TLC bar with yogurt:




Toast with PB around 5 PM:


Green Monster (spinach and almond breeze) around 6:30 PM:


The Office is on!  Thank goodness for decent television again!

    I've been dreaming about those cookies since I saw them on Meghann's blog too! Now I'm going to have to break down and make them!

  • Kat (Kat's Daily Plate) September 17, 2009, 7:09 pm

    I'm so excited for The Office, too! Yay for good fall TV to start again. 🙂

    Those cookies look amazing. I never bake- ever. But all of you bakers are starting to inspire me… maybe I should buy some flour and a rolling pin?

    Also, your hair looks super cute in a pigtail- in my humble opinion!

    Oh, man…those Montana Whoppers look too good to resist! I guess I'll be baking this weekend!

    We got this email today about a holiday cookie swap (I guess instead of a party, ugh) and my mind immediately went to those cookies.

  • seesaraheat September 17, 2009, 7:14 pm

    Those cookies sound great! I loved your breakfast day theme, I need to do that soon, breakfast is my favorite 🙂

  • Sarah @ The Foodie Diaries September 17, 2009, 7:16 pm

    YAY for The Office! If possible, I love Pam & Jim more after that episode

  • Heather September 17, 2009, 7:17 pm

    I have been thinking of those cookies for days! My husband Matt is off tomorrow and I have left all the ingredients for them on the counter with the hope I come home from work with homemade cookies!

  • sandy September 17, 2009, 7:21 pm

    thanks for mentioning the office! Since I am on the west coast i can still watch it I would have forgotten otherwise! and I am happy because project runway is on at 10 now so I can watch both!

  • Erica September 17, 2009, 7:28 pm

    Your hair looks super cute! Great way to round out the day of bfast foods 🙂 Yummy cookies

  • Annamarina (Running Tails) September 17, 2009, 7:33 pm

    I've also been wanting to make those cookies! Now I may just have to! I like the substitutions you made and may try them that way.

  • Melissa September 17, 2009, 7:44 pm

    I decided to have a day of breakfast….after seeing your waffles this morning, I couldn't help myself!!

  • Emily September 17, 2009, 7:50 pm

    I saw those on Meghann's blog too and I'm making them this weekend! They look TOO good!

  • Chelsea September 17, 2009, 8:15 pm

    Did you have to chill the dough like it says in the recipe? Or did you just skip it?

  • Gillian September 17, 2009, 8:27 pm

    I LOVE your hair like that!! Now I just have to figure out how to do it myself.

  • Joelle (The Pancake Girl) September 17, 2009, 8:44 pm

    Oooh those cookies look fab! I want one!

  • Jolene - EverydayFoodie September 17, 2009, 9:34 pm

    That hair style looks very pretty on you 🙂

  • Taylor September 17, 2009, 9:51 pm

    Gaaah I made those tonight too!! They're actually chilling right now in the fridge, but the dough was delicious! Super full now 😉

  • Caitlin at Healthy Tipping Point September 18, 2009, 2:28 am

    Chelsea – I dropped the dough in the freezer for like 10 minutes, but that's it. I'm a cheater!!

    thanks for the hair compliments, everyone 🙂

  • Rosey Rebecca September 18, 2009, 4:29 am

    I really need to try these cookies! They look incredible!

  • Neely September 18, 2009, 4:45 am

    Bah!! Why the hell is Montana still getting credit for the amazing midwestern-born Monster Cookie? Screw you Montana! ;D

  • Caitlin at Healthy Tipping Point September 18, 2009, 4:49 am

    Neely – LOL i miss you! we need to hang out.

  • Jenna September 18, 2009, 6:29 am

    those cookies look great!
    i like how you substituted some of your favorite things in!

  • Adrianna September 18, 2009, 7:10 am

    i made these today, too, lol. big hit in the household 🙂

  • Laura@FindingAHealthyBalance September 18, 2009, 7:27 am

    Yummy, omelet, I love them so! And, the yogurt bowl looked good too. =) Laura

    P.S. I like the side ponytail, I do that often, my hair is quite long and it works great in the summer.


  • Sarah September 18, 2009, 7:39 am

    Caitlin, I stop by to read your blog a few times a week and you are looking prettier every time I stop by. I don't know if you are wearing makeup in the photo above, but you look gorgeous and your hair is adorable like that! It really makes me wish I still had long hair so I could copy it 🙂

  • Amanda (Two Boos Who Eat) September 18, 2009, 7:42 am

    I want to make those cookies immediately. they look so good!

  • Caitlin at Healthy Tipping Point September 18, 2009, 7:44 am

    sarah – thanks 🙂 i was wearing a little make up but i had a really good day yesterday… maybe it just was a "glow" 🙂

  • jack+alli September 18, 2009, 7:57 am

  • Meredith September 18, 2009, 9:12 am

    I made Montana Whoppers last night too! And savory oatmeal based on your recommendation. Both were delicious!

  • Kristin (Kristin's Nibbles) September 18, 2009, 10:11 am

    WOW those cookies look awesome! And you hair looks good too =)


  • Jess September 19, 2009, 4:12 pm

    Love the side piggie! Rock it, lady!

  • Michelle from Taste As You Go November 17, 2009, 10:44 pm

    Why in God’s name has it taken me so long to find out that you tried the Montana Whoppers recipe?? Glad you liked them 🙂
