Actually, this is my *third* tried and true healthy cookie recipe to be added to the mix, but who doesn't like cookies?
During the recent Chicago Blizzard, a few snow days had us trapped inside and experiencing some cabin fever. By day two, I was crafted out, movied out, playing in the snow out..... so it was time to bake cookies!
Like most kids, my kids love chocolate chip cookies and while I try to keep them eating clean and healthy, they are kids. Kids Love Cookies.
I found this recipe on the back of the flour bag, seemed as easy as any, with a few tweaks I was able to keep it "clean". I personally love baking with spelt flour because it is fabulously nutritious, high in fiber and has a little bit of a nutty taste that is perfect for cookies!
