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 […]

Whole Foods Oatmeal Cookie Recipe

Whole Foods Cookies

I felt like making a wholesome oatmeal cookie today so I went to the Whole Foods Website to look for a recipe. Smart eh? As predicted, they had a healthy sounding oatmeal cookie with lots of wheat. It was (is) called Oh-So-Good-Oatmeal-Cookies and every word in the title has an “O” in it. The cookies […]

Wholesome Carrot Ginger Spice Cookies

Carrot Cookies

These are fat, dense, and have a lot of flavor thanks to all the spices and toasted pecans. I think they’d be excellent with dried cranberries or raisins, but I didn’t add them to this batch. The cookies don’t spread much, so make sure you flatten them slightly as directed. I forgot to do this […]

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

This recipe, which is loosely based on one from alt.cookies.yum.yum.yum was pretty good! It’s also on the wholesome side given the pumpkin, good fat, and whole grain flour. The texture is super-cakey to the point where the cookies are almost little round cakes. The chocolate chips make them extra good, …

Zucchini Cookies

I’ve decided not to immerse myself in cloning Carol’s cookies because really, there are too many good tried and true recipes out there to be made. Plus, ingredients are so expensive these days that I can’t afford to experiment much. Today’s recipe came from Cathy, who knew I was dealing with an overabundance of …

Judy’s Wholesome Chocolate Chip Cookies

healthy cookies

This recipe was emailed to me by Judy who wrote “Trust me, these are good.” I trusted her, but had to make one minor adjustment anyway. I used white whole wheat flour instead of whole wheat. These were excellent and perfect for when you’re craving something sweet, but don’t want entirely empty …
