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 […]

BHG Loaded Oatmeal Cookies

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 […]

cranberry cookie

I tested a lot of cranberry oatmeal cookies but kept coming back to this one. It’s from Greg, aka “Oatmeal Cookie Guy” who devoted his whole blog to oatmeal cookies. These cookies are an Oatmeal Cookie Guy original and they’re always a hit. I took them to a party and while there were several other […]
