Do healthy tasting cookies exist? Sure they do.

 

There are tray after tray of delicious cookie recipes loaded with healthy amounts of fiber and nutrients that don’t require processed sugar, high fructose corn syrup, and processed vegetable oil and that after eaten don’t spike our glucose levels. It’s 2018 we’ve come a long way to knowing how to make a cookie that tastes as good as grandma’s  but it’s a whole lot healthier than hers was.  And in moderation we can continue to enjoy those tasty treats like we did with grandma’s cookies.

Hard question to answer.  My paternal grandmother made these over-the-top molasses cookies that we grandchildren would sit in front of the oven to wait for.....and when they arrived Gran plopped a huge cube of butter on the top of each one.  My maternal grandmother made a cookie that no one would eat unless under gun point - some refrigerator sugar cookie with candied fruit that tasted awful. No one waited in front of the refrigerator for that one. However, her mother, my great grandmother Edye made a cookie called Chocolate Jumbles - a ginger infused chocolate cookie with hard vanilla icing. Heavenly.  For my own family, though, a rather traditional oatmeal cookie with raisins and cranberries is our go-to cookie.

  I like different flavors of Fig Newtons. Fruited cookies and shortbread cookies are usually low fat, by design, not by artificial means.

@sweetiepie69 Lemon lavender cookies sound delicious and I could use the lavender from my garden. Will you please share the recipe? Thanks.

 My favorite cookie is lemon Lavender .   The smell alone is all about spring.  Love the combination of both so fresh and light.
