You may have seen on Instagram that we ran a race on Saturday. It was cold, and I had a cold. And, when you run in the cold with a cold, your nose runs as fast as you do! Pretty sure I was the only runner with a handful of tissues in each hand. . . It made running interesting for both me and the people watching me! Somehow I managed to beat my goal by over a minute. Not sure how that happened since it felt like I was blowing my nose every half mile!

When we got back from the race, I was freezing and all I could think about was comfort food. The first place I thought to turn to was a collection of my grandma’s recipes. I love looking through her recipes because they contain lots of “pinches,” “dashes,” and missing ingredients and steps. It’s a lot like how I used to write down recipes! As soon as I saw this recipe, I knew I wanted to make it for a few different reasons. First, they were simply labeled “Chocolate chips with honey.” I knew there had to be more to the recipe than just two ingredients. Secondly, it contained oatmeal, and oatmeal cookies are the best. Lastly, I have never made cookies where the main sweetener is honey.

The fact that they were in my grandma’s collection of recipes didn’t hurt either! I ended up cutting out all of the white sugar that was listed because I don’t like super sweet cookies and I added some vanilla. I also gave a measurement to “dash.” :) They ended up being soft, nutty cookies with a hint of honey that made each bite intricately sweet, not overpoweringly sweet. A perfect post-run (or anytime) cookie!

  1. This sounds right up my alley!

  2. Way to run even when you were feeling poorly! These cookies look yummy! Definitely comfort food!

  3. WIth my aunt owning a honeycompany and sending it to me all the time, you’d think I’d bake with it all the time. But my experience with baking with honey is low. Evidently I need to get on it cause these cookies sound great!
