  1. I'll certainly give this recipe a try....firs,t I love my daily oatmeal. Second, the addition of almonds is what caught my eye. Thanks for your recent comment on my blog.

  2. Ooh these cookies look scrumptious. I've never baked cookies using honey before, shame on me! I'll have to rectify that. Thank you for the fab recipe. Sammie

  3. I knew that this was your recipe before I even scrolled down to the bottom. Your pictures are often very close up. You might want to try a bit further away, as the cookie is almost distorted, and I don't think the photo does that yummy cookie much justice. I am definitely not an expert on photography..... but I am an expert in tasting cookies! Looking forward to trying this one!

  4. I was looking for a healthy cookie recipe this morning and was directed to this site. This cookie looks amazing, I almost wanted to reach out and grab the cookie through my computer screen!! I think I will be visiting this site more often.

  5. What is liquid Honey? I've never known it to come in another form....should we just use regular Honey from a Jar or the "Bear"?

    1. Yes, honey comes in the comb, a rather "solid" version. It also comes granulated to use like sugar; from specialty stores usually. Liquid honey IS from the jar or Bear

    2. I buy my honey directly from a farm and comes in two forms. Liquid like you would find in the store in a jar or bear, or in a creamed version. All I had left was the creamed kind and needed to heat it up to bring it back to a liquid form so it was easier to work with. Thanks for the good question. Sandra Olsen thanks telling us about a granulated version. I was unaware of that. I will keep my eye open for that.

  6. I am always looking for good cookie recipes and this is one I will be using a lot. Thank you.

  7. Is there anything to use instead of the egg-my granddaughter is vegan.

    1. Mix 1/2 a tablespoon ground flax seed with 1 1/2 tablespoons water. Set aside until it gels. This equals 1 egg.

  8. Yum - cookies are always such a special treat!
