Our dear friends have hosted many Muggle Quidditch games on their property. They are moving soon 🙁 , so last night was the last game. I usually help run the “Three Broomsticks” where we have all kind of treats from butterbeer, licorice wands, chocolate turtles, every flavor beans, popcorn, etc. I decided to make pumpkin cookies to add to the offerings. I love the flavor of pumpkin chocolate chip cookies, but not the texture. They are usually to cakey for me. So I decided to add oatmeal to the mix and see what happened. The results are wonderful! I made 9 dozen cookies they are all gone now. The teenagers LOVED them! I had originally thought to make a chocolate glaze, but decided to go with a spiced glaze. These are a new family favorite!
Oatmeal is one of the healthiest foods around. It’s rich in soluble fiber, and has been proven to help lower cholesterol. It’s also inexpensive and keeps well, making it a good choice for long-tern food storage. (more…)
These are oh so yummy! I think of my dad every time I make them. Apple Fritters are his favorite! You can make these with all white flour, but we prefer them 1/2 & 1/2. If there is whole grain and fruit in them, do they count as healthy? I’m going with yes! (more…)
