Hearty Oatmeal Cookies

Hi Friends,

I am had a weird chunk of time to kill yesterday before heading to class.  What do I do when I don’t know what to do?  Bake cookies of course! 

Hearty Oatmeal Cookies

– 1/4 cup butter, at room temp

– 1/4 cup plus 1 TB brown sugar

– 1/8 cup buckwheat honey

– 1 egg

– 1/2 cup whole wheat flour

– 1/2 cup spelt flour

– 1/2 tsp baking soda

-1/4 tsp baking powder

– 1/2 tsp cinnamon

– 1/2 tsp cardamom

– 1/4 tsp nutmeg

– 3/4 cup rolled oats

– 1/2 cup raisins

– Preheat oven to 350

– Cream together butter, brown sugar and honey in a large bowl.  Beat egg into butter mixture.

– In a separate bowl, whisk together flours, baking powder, baking soda, and spices.  Add to the butter and egg mixture until well combine.

– Stir in oats and raisins. 

– Drop by the heaping tablespoon onto cookie sheets and bake for 8-10 min.

This recipe made 10 medium/large cookies.  For every cookie recipe I post on the blog, I have one that doesn’t make as it turns out to be awful flop.  These are anything but!  The spice combination is exactly to my liking.  The cookies have a nice hardy texture but the addition of the spelt flour kept them chewy. 

I put 8 aside to take to a girls dinner on Friday night and left two out for Art and I to enjoy.  In the middle of class last night, I got a text from him asking if he could eat another.  The man is picky with his baked goods so I take this as a sign that the cookies truly are good :)

I just finished the best smoothie that I didn’t photograph as I wasn’t sure how it would turn out.  I blended 15 grams Vanilla Tera’s Whey (check out the company website.  very cool.  and no they aren’t paying me to say that)  , a handful of frozen cranberries, a very ripe pear, Almond Breeze, powdered ginger and 3 ice cubes.  Topped with Nature’s Path Optimum Cranberry Ginger Cereal, it made for a really yummy, fall inspired breakfast.   

What is your favorite kind of cookie?  Have any cool breakfast recommendations to share?
