Giant Breakfast Cookies
1 cup butter, melted
¾ cup honey
1 t. salt
1 t. cinnamon
1 t. baking soda
1 t. vanilla
½ cup buttermilk
2 cups whole wheat flour
2 cups whole rolled oats
1 cup raisins or chocolate chips
Mix butter, honey, eggs, salt, cinnamon, soda, vanilla and buttermilk. Stir in flour and oats. Fold in raisins or chocolate chips. Scoop heaping tablespoons of dough onto a cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes. Allow cookies to cool 3-4 minutes on cookie sheet before removing cookies to cool on a wire rack.These are basically like healthy oatmeal cookies. My children love these. For a small family you could probably cut this recipe in half, as it feeds my crew for two days. Normally the second day we crumble the cookies and pour milk over it. Yum.
3 ¾ qts (15 cups) popped corn (no need to be exact with the measurements here!)
1/2 cup rapadura or sucanat (or brown sugar can be used, if desired)
1/4 cup honey
½ cup butter
½ tsp sea salt
½ tsp baking soda
½ tsp vanilla
In small saucepan heat your sweetener choice, butter, salt & vanilla, stirring occasionally, until bubbly around edges, about 2-3 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in soda. Continue to stir as you pour over popped corn till coated.
This has been my sweet snack of choice recently. It's so easy to make and so delicious, it's pretty hard to pass up. I had been looking for a caramel corn recipe for a long time but every one I came across had corn syrup and way too much sugar. Needless to say, I was pretty excited when I found this one!
On a totally unrelated (but exciting!) note, I ordered a grain mill yesterday. We have been wanting to get one for almost a year now and we finally did it! We've heard the best things about the nutrimill. If you don't know the benifits to grinding your own flour, read about it here . It should be arriving sometime next week. Now, to find a good source of wheat. Any sugggestions?? I'll let you know how it goes!
Life is pretty crazy right now on the homefront. Kate is, by far, the easist baby I've ever had. It's the other ones I'm having a problem with. Between having a new baby, moving to a new house, having the grandparents visit, and being down with colds and flu's, they are a little...worked up. It's been a challenge.
Anyway, thanks for reading! Hope your day is blessed!
