Shaydons’ Favorite Oatmeal Cookies 

Print Friendly 

Description:

This was my sons’ favorite school time cookie while growing up.
The original recipe called for sugar and was tasty, but over the years I’ve slowly changed this recipe by substituting some ingredients...mothers sometimes have to be tricky.

Alternatives to sugar:
Brown rice syrup, maple syrup, applesauce or agave nectar.
Alternatives to Flour:
There are many variations of flour on the shelf these days, and lots of people to food sensitivities, why not try buckwheat flour or brown rice flour.



Ingredients:
1 cup butter
1 tsp baking soda (non almuninum)
1/4 cup apple sauce
1/3 cup boiling water
½ cup brown rice syrup or maple syrup
1 cup rolled oats
1 ½ cups whole-wheat flour
1 cup quinoa flakes
1 tsp salt
½ cup chopped nuts
1 tsp vanilla
¾ cup chocolate chips or raisins


Directions:
1.Beat butter until creamy.
2.Add syrup and applesauce and beat.
3.Add vanilla.
4.Add flour and salt, mix well.
5.Dissolve baking soda in boiling water and blend into mixture.
6.Stir in nuts, oats and chips.
7.Roll into balls and flatten with fork.
8.Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes.


Notes: I hope you enjoy *To make this gluten free, switch the oats to quinoa flakes and flour to your choice of gluten free. It is a very forgiving recipe.

There’s No Such Thing as “Mostly Gluten Free
A comment made by a parent at our homeschool Christmas Party gave me the inspiration for this month’s topic. As I placed my plate of gluten free cookies on the snack table the mom next to me said “I didn’t know you were gluten free? We are mostly gluten free too.” Obviously she doesn’t understand what being gluten free really means...

Recipe
Cherry Smoothie
Category: Raw Foods
Description: Cherries can be sweet or sour, red or black. My favorite varieties are the big black ones. We used to enjoy “Bing” cherries I commonly now see a variety called “Lapins”. Cherries contain anthocyanins, the red pigment in berries. Cherry anthocyanins have been shown to reduce pain and inflammation. Anthocyanins are also potent antioxidants. In addition, they appear to significantly lower blood levels of cholesterol and triglycerides. Cherries are considered a warm food and are great for increasing circulation. They make an excellent detoxifying food, helping the body eliminate uric acid and cleanse the kidneys. They contain ellagic acid, an anticancer compound. So, not only do they taste fabulous, they are also very healthy. A word of caution, cherries are considered to be part of the “”Dirty Dozen” when it comes to fruits and vegetables that have been found to contain the highest levels of pesticide residues. So, it is vitally important to choose only organically grown cherries. They may be considerably more expensive, but your health is worth every extra penny you spend.
Fresh cherries are best stored in a bag in the fruit drawer of your refrigerator. They can also be pitted and frozen into serving sized portions.
