Honey oatmeal flax raisin peanut butter cookies

We give whole foods to Disha as much as possible. This means no processed, sugary foods. Yes, she has eaten sugary stuff a few times, much to our disdain. But we cannot completely stop her exposure either.

As much as I can, I try making things at home. Its fun to do it along with my toddler- she is so curious about everything. Sometimes she observes what I am doing. Other times she wants to actively participate.

Yesterday we had a couple of our neighbors come home to bake  oatmeal raisin cookies. They turned out pretty yummy. The kids had a nice time interacting and playing. We also made puffed rice snack (read :bhel puri). It was an evening well spent and enjoyed!  So much so that we decided to bake a sugar free chocolate cake today 😀

I was going through some cookie recipes online and decided to experiment a bit. We ended up with some yummy honey oatmeal flax raisin peanut butter cookies. The peanut butter gave a nice crunchy taste.
