whole wheat pastry flour cookies

As promised, here is the whole wheat chocolate chip cookie recipe. What I like about these cookies is the mix of nutty flavors from the wheat flour and walnuts.  The evaporated cane juice crystals seem to add a little flavor too.  You could substitute granulated, but the cookies are actually better with the crystals. …

Sorry today’s post is late. I’m in the middle of a cleaning project. Given all the junk in my house, putting less in my body seemed like a good idea today, so I decided to make something sort of healthy. This recipe is from Heidi Swanson, who makes cookies with natural peanut butter, maple …

peanut butter barley corn

If the Starbucks cookie recipe wasn’t wholesome enough for you, here’s another one you might consider. It’s a wheat-free, egg-free, almost vegan (just swap out the butter and milk) peanut butter cookie made with maple syrup, barley flour and cornmeal. I made a small batch this morning and thought the cookies were okay, …

Muffin Top Cookies

Late yesterday afternoon, Fuzz fell asleep in a chair by the kitchen. She looked so cute that I was inspired to make a nutritious cookie in her honor. I called these “muffin-top cookies” to set expectations…they’re cakey!  Fuzz loved them and they’ve got enough protein and fiber to make a good snack or if you’re […]

Loaded Oatmeal Cookie

I wasn’t sure how the brownies would turn out, so I decided to make a quick batch of the Loaded Oatmeal Cookies from BHG. I had some doubts. With all the wheat germ and flax, would they taste too healthy?  Would they be too oat-y? Because I had everything on hand, I baked them anyway […]

Whole Wheat Cinnamon Chip Pecan Cookies

Cinnamon Chip Cookies

If this recipe looks familiar, it’s because it’s a variation on an earlier recipe for whole wheat chocolate chunk cookies. Instead of chocolate chunks, I added some Hershey’s cinnamon chips and they worked beautifully! I’ve made this cookie 3 times and have had good results, but make sure you use enough flour or …

Well, I’m finally getting around to posting today’s cookie. Sorry it’s late. I spent all morning at the hair salon then came home and wasted a lot of time on travel sites. I think I’m putting all my recipe building energy into travel routing. It’s kind of a puzzle, really. …

Agave Honey Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

If you happen to have some agave nectar and are looking for ways to use it, here’s a recipe you might like. I made a batch a few days ago and think these tasted even better today. Maybe the agave and honey keeps them fresh? I’m not sure, but I’ll be making them again. Next […]
