Baking My Way: Honey Nut Chews
These are a great camp fire or hiking cookie! Lots of tasty (semi) healthy stuff in there and good energy with the honey and molasses in them. They would also make a good granola bar substitute.
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 cup margarine or butter, softened
1/2 cup honey
2 tablespoons milk
1 tablespoon molasses
2 1/2 cups All Purpose or Unbleached Flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups rolled oats
1 cup coconut
1 cup raisins
1/2 cup chopped nuts
Heat oven to 350°F. Lightly grease cookie sheets. In large bowl, combine brown sugar, margarine, honey, milk, molasses and egg; blend well. Lightly spoon flour into measuring cup; level off. Stir in flour and salt; mix well. Stir in remaining ingredients. Drop dough by rounded teaspoonfuls 2 inches apart onto greased cookie sheets.
Bake at 350°F. for 12 to 14 minutes or until light golden brown. Immediately remove from cookie sheets.
