Maple Walnut Cookies

I'm featuring these cookies again because they are just so good and full of good healthy things.  This week when making them we tried using Kamut flour and we left out the carob chips!  They are so Tasty this way and probably even more Healthy! 

They are so good any cookie lover will really enjoy them even if they don't like walnuts! (They are ground and so you don't know they are in them. My little girl who says she doesn't like walnuts will eat these even though she helped make them and knows that walnuts are in them!) They taste too good to be healthy but because of the flax and walnuts they are full of the good omega fatty acids that help with so many things and we can't seem to get enough of! Just be sure not to tell your family how good they are for them! ;) ENJOY!

Maple Walnut Cookies
2 1/2 cups walnuts ground in food processor or blender (measure then grind)
2/3 cup whole wheat flour (or Kamut)
3/4 t. sea salt
1/3 cup golden flax seed meal (ground flax seeds)
2/3 cup pure maple syrup
2 t. vanilla
1 t. maple flavoring
1/3 cup carob chips

In order, mix together ingredients well. Grease cookie sheet and preheat oven to 350. Drop dough on cookie sheet with spoon and flatten with fork. Bake for 18 minutes. Or until lightly browned. Let cool for just a minute then remove from the cookie sheet before totally cooled.

This recipe looks yummy! Thanks for all the wonderful recipes. It's such a blessing to get them and they are given freely. Thank you! Now for my question, do you have a good source for maple syrup on-line? It's in so many recipes I use lately. I need to find a good place to buy it where it's affordable.

Carla: I have gotten maple syrup from both the Azure Standard co-op that I buy from and Costco. Really right now I have not found it very affordable anywhere. I have found substituting agave works pretty good and it is a bit cheaper. Or if you need the maple flavor using half syrup half agave. Also I have been know to dilute my maple syrup a bit with water just to help it go further. About 1/3 part water 2/3 part syrup. Good luck and if you find a great place to get good affordable maple syrup please let me know. Azure so far is the cheapest I have found it but it.

Tammie, Can I ask you some questions about "your herbs you wouldn't be without" do you get the chickweed and the yarrow in liquid with droppers.

Tammie said...

Kim: The Yarrow yes, that or I get it out of my yard. It grows like crazy around here. The Chickweed I buy in a Ointment from Dr. Christopher's Herb shop it's called "Itch Ointment."
