We may eat healthy, but like everyone else do crave a little something sweet sometimes too.  With blood sugar levels a little on the high side I choose to keep as much sugar out of our diet as I can but sometimes I NEED!  I came up with this great cookie recipe that satisfies my sweet tooth and fulfills my desire for sugar and flour.
  • 1 cup spelt flour
  • 1/2 cup brown rice flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup egg beaters
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/4 cup mini chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350.  Add the first 4 ingredients into a bowl and whisk together, set aside.  In a separate bowl mix the oil and the honey together with an electric mixer on low until mixed well.  Add the yogurt, egg beaters and vanilla and mix again on low until well incorporated and creamy.  Add the flour mixture and mix well, then stir in the nuts and chocolate chips.

Cover a baking sheet with parchment paper and drop cookie dough by tablespoonful on to the sheet.  Press down slightly.  Bake for 12-15 minutes and cool on a baking rack.  Makes 24 cookies

  1. again, you are impressing me with the spelt flour. I haven't tried that one yet, although I did make a few different desserts this weekend with the brown rice flour I had on hand. I need to pick up some spelt next time I'm at the store. Thanks for the reminder!
