Fuel’s Chocolate-Chip Oatmeal Pecan Cookies
Fuel Cafe is one of my favorite lunch spaces. They have a nice, quiet outdoor patio, and fabulous, fresh creative food, that is perfectly seasoned with unique sauces. It’s tucked away in the Taxi development in North Denver. A little off the beaten path, but well worth the trip. Also, parking is much easier than downtown.
One time they ran out of cookies before I ordered dessert. I was so disappointed. Now, I always ask for a chocolate chip oatmeal cookie on the way to my table before my meal.
I guess I must talk about them (the cookies) a lot, as John called me at work when he saw the recipe for Fuel’s chocolate chip oatmeal cookies recipe published in
5280 Magazine. It made my day!

- Drop cookies by the heaping 2 tablespoons onto a baking sheet. (At the restaurant, they use ¼ cup scoops, and the cookies are really big. I like to make them a little smaller… so I can have two.)
