In Honor of the 4th of July!

Our Canadian Friends celebrated Canada Day on Wednesday and today our U.S. friends are celebrating the 4th of July, Independence Day! Happy 4th of July everyone.

Because they are an American Favorite I’m posting these loaded Chocolate Chip Cookies in honor to the 4th of July! They are also copyrighted all over the place so I’m going to trust because of their popularity that everyone knows the recipe already.

The things that I add to them that makes them loaded are…
2 Cups of Oatmeal
2 Cups of sweet coconut flakes
1 Cup of Walnuts
1 Cup of Almonds
The harder to stir the better!

God bless Canada and the U.S.A!


  1. happy 4th of July Ellen, and all the our American readers.
    I agree Ellen, the more loaded the cookie, the better.......yum!

  2. Toll House really are a American staple aren't they? Have a wonderful Independence Day Ellen.
    You have just a little Canadian in you now that you are linked to all us Canadian girls. .the next step is to get you over the border for a visit.

  3. Oops, I tried to edit the post to make the photos smaller but it didn't correct the actual post for me. I am just not good at blogger posting and editing :0) Sorry :0(

  4. Loaded cookies? Love that..
    Happy 4th of July to you Ellen and to all of our USA readers!

  5. Happy 4th of July, Ellen.
    Loaded cookies are my weakness!

  6. Happy Fourth of July, Ellen. You're right, toll house cookies are an American favourite that has happily crossed the border and become a Canadian favourite too.

  7. Thank you for the July 4 good wishes, and this great recipe. Toll House cookies simply delicious, wherever they are made and enjoyed!

  8. Oh my....these 'extras' really would make these a special treat today! Happy 4th of July to our Southern Cousins!

  9. I'm so glad recipes travel freely across the toll required! Your cookies look great!

    Happy 4th of July to you all.

  10. Those cookies look so yummy. Happy 4th of July to you. I have family who live in the USA and they are celebrating today too. Enjoy the day. Kathy

  11. Um, yummy! The add-ins sound great.

  12. I just found this blog, thanks to the Mennonite Herald that came today.
    I echo the "Happy 4th of July!" to the American readers, coming from an Americanadian (or Canadamerican, whichever you prefer).
    And Happy Canada Day, even if a bit late, to all the Canadians!

    I will be back to look around!

  13. I also add i cup of rice krispies to the batter. Adds a nice crunch for those of us who like our cookies "krispy." Nancy

  14. Happy belated Independence day to you, Ellen! I love how you incorporated the American colors into the photos!

  15. I grew up on these cookies! But have never tried adding all the extras... i actually like them best with white flour even ~ tried the whole wheat but it's just not the same
