Sourdough Oatmeal Cookies

Looking for a healthy recipe for snacks that will be good for you and your kids. Try these cookies.

Sourdough Oatmeal Cookies

2 sticks butter
1 1/2 cup of Rapadura (or Sucanat)
2 c. thick sourdough batter
(add 1 c. flour to 1 c. sourdough and let sit overnight)
3 c. rolled oats
1 1/2 c. spelt flour (or 1/2 white and 1/2 whole grain)
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. cinnamon
2 cups of crispy nuts, raisins, or chocolate chips

Cream sugar, shortening, and butter. Add sourdough and rolled oats. Combine flour with cinnamon and baking soda. Add to mix. Mix well and chill in refrigerator for 7 to 12 hours. The longer you chill it the more sour it will be. You want the sourdough to break down and neutralize phytic acid in the grains so they will be more easily digested.

Add nuts, raisins, or chips. Drop by teaspoon onto a cookie sheet. Bake @350 for 15 min.

You can also omit the cinnamon and nuts and roll out into shapes. For a natural frosting I use cream cheese sweetened with honey. Eat right away, this frosting won't last long.

I adapted this recipe from one that a friend gave years ago out of her grandmother's cookbook.
