Health-Giving Cookies

SONY DSCAs fall approaches, and yummy food becomes more and more a constant temptation, here is a recipe that is both yummy and health-giving. I combined it together from this and that recipe…as I usually do!

These cookies contain no white sugar or white flour, rather they are made with honey and whole-grain flour, as well as whole oats.  I think you and your family will love them, and you won’t have to subject your body to ingredients that stress your immune system.

I took this picture when my friend Judy was over for tea.  Right after I took the picture, we dove in and ate cookies to our heart’s content over good conversation and steaming herbal tea (“to our heart’s content” was two cookies a piece, but they are filling!). It was a nice way to ring in a chilly fall season, which seems to have come upon us suddenly. Don’t know if I’m ready for our Colorado winters, but maybe if I keep a good supply of health cookies, hot tea, and good friends around, the wintry days will seem a little warmer 🙂

Here’s the recipe:

Bev’s Honey Oat Cookies

Preheat oven to 375

1 stick butter (soft but not melted)
1/2 cup peanut butter (I use Jif Natural)
1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup pure maple syrup
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla

Combine the above ingredients.
You can mix by hand, but using a hand mixer
on low works best.

Then combine these dry ingredients:
1 1/4 cup whole spelt flour (You may substitute with whole wheat)
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
3 cups rolled oats
1 cup raisins (optional)
1/2 cup chopped pecans (optional)
2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. of ground cloves and/or nutmeg

Bake for about 9 minutes or until there is
just a little golden brown on edges.

If the consistency doesn’t seem just right, feel free to
add a bit more flour.
