Whisked Away Wednesday: Eggless Whole Wheat Cookies

These cookies came about thanks to a late night crisis. I told my employees I would bring them "healthy" cookies... it was 11:00 at night and I had NO eggs, NO chocolate chips, raisins, add-ins of any kind, NO white flour and only a bit of sugar. I really needed to go shopping, but pulling 10-12 hour days at work made that a bit tough. But, against all odds, these cookies came out awesome! I was so excited when I pulled them out of the oven as basically, I had just thrown some stuff into a bowl, stirred, and hoped for the best. These are definitely going on my favorites list, and I have already made them twice this week (at the request of my coworkers!). They are a crisp, filling cookie, that I don't feel too bad about eating for breakfast. I am sure they would be great (and even more nutritionally balanced) if you threw in some raisins or nuts. I am making them again tonight and am going to sub in high quality maple syrup for the honey. I will let you know how they turn out!


Ingredients
2 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
2 tablespoon fat free half and half
3/4 cup white sugar
1/4 cup honey
1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 cup oil (ya, I was out of butter too, but I bet they would be good with butter as well!)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix together all ingredients in a big bowl. Using an ice cream scoop or large spoon, place rounds of cookie dough two-inches apart on a parchment paper lined cooking sheet.
Press down a bit on the tops of the cookies. Cook in preheated oven for 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned.
satisfying and tasty
Happy munching!
