Honey Oatmeal Cookies

May 4, 2014

Both Jim and I have been reading Phil Gaimon’s (pro cyclist and lover of cookies) latest book we were left with a cookie craving.

Honey Oatmeal Cookie with Book

I had all these ingredients in the cupboard so I gave this recipe a go. It’s from the Marjorie Johnson’s cookbook who is a famous blue ribbon baker from MN with some 1,000+ State Fair blue ribbons.  These cookies remind me more of an energy bar since they have oats, nuts, and coconuts. When I made them I actually didn’t have any walnuts and substituted slivered almonds. I think the recipe needed walnuts or something similar (cranberries, chocolate chips, ect) to make it more of a heterogeneous mixture.
