Honey Nut Cookies My family loves anything made with honey in the recipe.  These cookies are so good and children love them. They won’t last long!

1 cup whole wheat flour
1 1/2  cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup old-fashioned Quaker oats
1 1/2 sticks butter or margarine or 12 tablespoons, melted
1 cup honey
3/4 cup sour cream
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 egg
1 cup raisins
1 cup walnut pieces
In a large mixing bowl whisk together the whole wheat flour, all-purpose flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda, and oats.  In a small bowl mix honey, melted butter, sour cream, and vanilla.  Add this to the larger bowl and mix with a spoon.  Add egg and continue mixing until batter is well mixed. Fold in raisins and walnut pieces.  Spray a cookie sheet and drop by spoonfuls onto sheet.  Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 12 to 16 minutes.  Makes about 3 dozen depending on size you make them.  Enjoy!

    can I use all, all-purpose flour and omit using part whole wheat flour?

  2. Could I substitute chocolate chips for the raisins without compromising the flavor of the cookies?

  3. Golly Garsh! I really want one…I’m just finishing up my coffee. Do you deliver? =) YUUUMMMMMM!!

  4. Well, I’d forget the raisins, but everything else is just perfect. Love the use of wheat flour and sour cream.
