1/2 cup honey
1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
Pinch of salt
1 teaspoon baking salt
A splash of vanilla
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1/4 cup chocolate chips, your discretion
What to do:
Preheat oven to 325°. In a large bowl,, cream together first 4 ingredients. In another bowl, sift together remaining ingredients. Add in walnuts and chocolate chips (if you wish) and then incorporate flour mixture to creamed mixture.
Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper. Drop cookie dough by rounded teaspoonfuls two inches apart, as they will spread a little. Bake about 12 to 14 minutes. These cookies are soft and not overly sweet, but will satisfy that pesky sweet tooth. Made with above recipe,, these are 120 calories each. Decrease the walnuts and chocolate chips and, well, you’ll decrease the calories. Yields about 2 dozen.
