The other day I browsed through my messy recipe binder. This thing is full of old magazine clippings and hand written recipes. It’s interesting how many stories are behind these recipes. So many of them remind me of people, special events and past celebrations.
I like my old recipes ; covered in food stains and torn. Some so bad I can’t even make out the recipe anymore. But you know, the ones with the most stains are the best ones.
Like this Apple-Oatmeal Cookies recipe. I don’t exactly remember where it came from (probably a very old magazine), but I still remember making it for the first time. My oldest was about 16 months old and I was pregnant with my second child. My oldest is now 21. Wow!
Anyways. It’s winter. It’s cold outside. These cookies are perfect for those who don’t care much for super sugary things. They are soft and chewy, perfect as a snack or even breakfast.
Finding this recipe again was like finding gold at the end of the rainbow.
I am eating a cookie as I’m typing this. So good. I should really make these more often.Instead of raisins, I added coconut. The last three ingredients are kind of blurry. Sorry about that. You’ll need 1/2 cup honey, 1/2 oil and 1/3 cup milk.
