Yummy Monday

With my new leash on life, I want to ensure health for my family, too. I think kids should be encouraged not just to help out in the kitch, but to love what they're making. These are fun for them to help make, healthy, and easy to take along as snacks.

Nutty Cereal Cookies
1 c. whole wheat flour
½ c. flax seed meal
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 c. unsalted butter, softened
1c. unsweetened applesauce
1 c. packed brown sugar
2 eggs

1 tsp vanilla
2 c. wheat cereal flakes (like Uncle Sam's)
2 c. rolled oats (not quick cook)
1 1/2 c. chopped walnuts, toasted
1 1/2 c. dried cranberries, golden raisins, dried cherries, or dried blueberries

Pre-heat oven to 325˚F. In a medium bowl combine flour, flax seed meal, baking powder, baking soda, & cinnamon: set aside.

In a large mixing bowl beat butter with an electric mixer on medium to high speed for 30 seconds. Add applesauce & brown sugar. Beat until combined, scraping sides of bowl occasionally. Beat in eggs & vanilla until combined. Beat in as much of the flour mixture as you can with the mixer. With a wooden spoon, stir in any remaining flour mixture. Stir in wheat cereal, oats, walnuts & dried fruit.

Drop by well-rounded teaspoonfuls 2 inches apart onto cookie sheets lined with parchment paper. Bake 12-14 minutes or until golden & set.

Cool on cookie sheets 2 minutes. Transfer to cooling rack to cool completely.

Makes about 5 dozen

Don't fear whole wheat. Crunchy feels great! With this recipe, you'll be getting your whole grains, omega-3 from the flax & antioxidants from the raisins/ berries. How can you resist??
