Cocoa nib cookies

Remember a couple weeks ago when I visited the Allspice store in East Village, Des Moines?  I bought a small bag of cocoa nibs while I was there, but I didn't really know how I would use them.

A couple weeks later, I found this recipe for Oatmeal Walnut Cocoa Nib Cookies from Joy the Baker. Finally, a great recipe to try out the cocoa nibs.  And this was a great recipe.  I love a good oatmeal cookie, and the cocoa nibs added a nice coffee-like kick to these treats.  If you don't have cocoa nibs at home, then you could probably just add dark chocolate chips, or just stick with the semi-sweet chips.  Either way, these are a good go-to cookie for snacking.

I hear you can also use cocoa nibs as a topper for yogurt or oatmeal, but I thought the flavor was too bitter. But they were perfect in cookie form!
