Healthy Recipe

This month's Healthy Recipe is proof positive you can make naturally sweet treats, just like Grandma's, without the use of artificial ingredients.

Adapted from Sinfully Vegan by Lois Dieterly

Little Oaties

2 1/2 C maple syrup
1/2 C brown sugar or Sucanat
1/4 C applesauce
1 C canola oil
3 C barley flour
6 C uncooked oatmeal
2 tsp vanilla
1 tsp aluminum-free baking soda

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Combine maple syrup, canola oil, and vanilla and stir to combine. Add flour and oatmeal and mix. Drop in teaspoon-size amounts onto cookie sheet lined with parchment paper (or greased). Bake 15 minutes (or until cookies just being to brown). Allow to cool for 5 minutes. Remove to wire rack and cool completely.

Variations: Try adding 1 cup chocolate chips for oatmeal chocolate chip cookies. Or replace 1 cup oatmeal with 1 cup unsweetened coconut and add 1 cup chocolate chips for a deliciously rich-tasting cookie.

Hint: If you measure out the oil before the maple syrup, the maple syrup will come out of the measuring cup more easily.

Makes 3 1/2 dozen

Mom's Warm Peanut Butter Cookies

1 C maple syrup
1/2 C canola oil
1 C natural peanut butter
2 tsp vanilla
2 C unbleached flour

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Combine maple syrup, canola oil, peanut butter, and vanilla in a medium bowl. Add flour and mix to combine. Form batter into teaspoon-size balls of dough with your hands. Put on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper (or greased). Press the tines of the fork across the top of the cookie to make perpendicular imprints. Bake for 20 minutes. Allow to cool for 5 minutes. Place on wire rack and allow to cool completely.

Variations: Roll dough into balls. Make a hole in the center of the dough with your finger tip or knuckle, being careful not to press all the way through the cookie. Bake as directed above. When the cookies are completely cool, fill hole with grape jelly for peanut butter and jelly cookies. Or you can melt chocolate chips and fill the hole with the melted chocolate for chocolate peanut butter cookies. Chill before serving.

Makes about 4 dozen cookies.
