My hubby + a 1st grader + twins in kindergarten + 4 critters..... Yeah it is chaos, but we are blessed!

Today's Verse

Early on I did not had much success with making cookies with whole wheat and I really have not experimented much.   But here is a recipe that does work well with freshly ground whole wheat flour.

Oatmeal Cookies

Combine until creamy:
1 cup butter
1 cup honey
1 cup sugar

Add and beat well:
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla

Combine dry ingredients and add to above, mix well:
2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1 tsp  baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt

Then stir in:
2 1/2 cups quick oats
1/2 cup shredded coconut
1/2 cup chopped nuts (optional)

Drop by tablespoonful onto ungreased cookie sheets.  Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes or until light golden brown.  Cool 1-2 minutes on cookie sheet then transfer to wire cooling racks until cooled.  Store completely covered.
