A triple threat cookie

Oh these cookies…

Today is exciting not because it’s the first of September, which means autumn is right around the corner, not because I have a super gooey chocolate chunk cookie recipe for you today, not because I am moving to college tomorrow, but because I have a video for you today! And…it includes one of my favorite film techniques ever: stop motion!

I love videography (and photography!) and creating stories that make the audience feel a certain way. This vignette is one of my favorite short films I have created so far and almost gives me fairytale vibes (haha :)). So I hope you enjoy this little snippet that was so much fun to film.

But yes, these cookies are also really exciting as well. Anything with chocolate is exciting in my book. Oh and oatmeal…and coconut – sweetened coconut. I call them “triple threat” because they’re packed with oats (i.e. the secret ingredient in these cookies that brings them to a whole new level), coconut, and chocolate. Just too good.
