honey oatmeal cookies.
What to do with the fresh delicious honey we just got last weekend? Cookies, of course.
3 Tbsp butter (room temp)
1/4 c honey
1/2 c brown sugar
1 Tbsp water
1/2 c flour (I used whole wheat pastry)
1/2 tsp ground sea salt
1/4 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 c rolled oats
Preheat oven to 350º F. Grease a cookie sheet.
In a bowl or mixer, mix together the butter, brown sugar, honey, egg and water.
In a different bowl sift together the dry ingredients and then stir the oats in.
Add the dry ingredients to the wet and mix all together.
Drop small balls/teaspoon sized balls onto the cookie sheet.
Bake 10 to 13 minutes.
Cool on a rack.
I like to add things into recipes. Not only because I am not capable of following a recipe without changing it (or a pattern), but also because I like adding things to recipes that not only taste good but that are good for us too. Toss in a handful of ground flax to cookies or bread recipes - tastes great plus you get the omega 3s. Substitute whole wheat pastry flour for the bleached out stuff--more vitamins and minerals from the whole wheat, but the cookies/cakes/breads still are tasty and light. Added bonus and easy to do!
