Honey Apple Cookies

Each week, my little family reserves Monday night for family night. We choose a basic principle - like sharing, honesty, or prayer- talk about it, play little games to reinforce the idea, sing songs, and then we bake cookies. I've been trying some different recipe that don't contain sugar, and this is a favorite.

Honey Apple Cookies
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup stone ground whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 cups ground oats
  • 1 apple, shredded

Cream the butter, add the honey, add egg and vanilla. Combine dry ingredients then add to the wet. Stir in oats and apple. I sometimes add a shredded carrot, nuts or sunflower seeds. Bake for 9-10 minutes at 375 degrees.

Happy weekend, friends! Enjoy!

Thanks for the inspiration and recipe! My oldest doesn't tolerate apples well, so I made a variation of these tonight for him to take to school this week. And they are awesome. Have a good week!
