TWD: Honey Wheat Cookies


Honey Wheat Cookies were the pick for this week's Tuesdays with Dorie. They're a simple little cookie with unusual ingredients - wheat germ, lemon, and honey. Very easy to put together and quite good, too!

The only other time I've baked with wheat germ was for the Granola Grabber cookies I made for TWD a while back. I pulled out that jar of wheat germ, only to find that it expired. But I'm happy to share my newfound knowledge - wheat germ can be frozen. So my new jar will NOT be going to waste! I also found a recipe for adding in wheat germ to oatmeal, so I'm planning to use up my wheat germ for that.


We've been enjoying these cookies. I wouldn't rate them as the best cookies I've ever had, though. I typically prefer chocolate or peanut butter in my cookies. But these are a great option for a healthier cookie and I love the honey and lemon combo. My 2-year-old son has been really enjoying these, and I haven't had to feel guilty when he chows down a couple of cookies in one sitting. They're healthy!

Many thanks to Michelle at Flourchild for selecting this week's recipe. If you'd like to make these, head on over to her blog to find out how.

Your cookies look so pretty lined up on the towel. I liked these, much to my surprise. I am also a chocolate and/or peanut butter person.

You can also use wheat germ in peanut butter balls (but I like the recipie with crushed rice krispies better).

I kept waiting for someone to incorporate some chocolate into these but so far I haven't seen any, surprisingly enough. I loved these with tea...honey and lemon already built in the cookie, a perfect match. Yours look lovely, the color and shape is ideal.

Mine was expired, too. Guess I'd better toss that new jar in the freezer! They look great.
