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!

I love how these cookies used ww flour and honey but I prefer crispier cookies. Is there a way to crisp up this recipe or do you have another recipe to recommend? Thank you!

my grandams recipes are all like that too - no real measurements, but they always end up being the best ones!

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!
