I shared another oatmeal cookie recipe back in the early days of the Honour System that was a gluten free, flourless variety.

HOW IS SPROUTED GRAIN FLOUR HEALTHIER?

Sprouting grains increases many of the grains’ key nutrients, including B vitamins, vitamin C, folate, fiber, and essential amino acids often lacking in grains, such as lysine. Sprouted grains may also be less allergenic to those with grain protein sensitivities.

Sprouting grains also breaks down phytate, a form of phytic acid that normally decreases absorption of vitamins and minerals in the body. So sprouted grains have more available nutrients than mature grains. Those nutrients include iron, zinc, magnesium, and protein

We had to refrain from eating the entire batch!

I wanted enough cookies leftover to take photos of the next day. It was a good lesson in restraint for us. πŸ˜‰ I’m not one who can freeze treats to eat for later. I’ll eat most of what I make within two days.

What can I say? We like our food around here.

So when I mentioned the ingredients earlier, you will have seen butter among them. Dairy/animal products that I buy are organic and grass fed, when available. It’s important to me and makes my Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies a much better alternative to the store bought, chemical variety.

If you feel like cookies, go for these.

But, don’t blame me if you eat the whole darned batch. πŸ˜‰

  1. Sounds so good, but I’m allergic to coconut πŸ™ what would you suggest as an alternative?

    Ps I made the granola recipe tonight, added cranberries and macadamia nuts- heaven!

    1. Hey Crystal! You could try sliced or chopped macadamia nuts or brazil nuts. They have kind of similar flavour as coconut. Love the addition of the cranberry! πŸ™‚

  2. You know, I just discovered sprouted flour and am loving it! I’ve been using it in tortillas, and it seems to work similarly to regular all-purpose, which is awesome! I bet it’s delicious in cookies too. πŸ™‚

    1. Well, if the speed at which they disappeared are any indication … I think the sprouted grain flour works pretty good for cookies. πŸ˜‰ Thanks Lauren!
