Chewy Oatmeal Raisin Spelt Cookies Recipe

Chewy Chocolate Chip Butter Oatmeal Cookies Recipe

MMM Love the smell of homemade cookies baking? We smelled them and fresh bread every morning in the bakery… irresistible fragrance to us and the customers!

I call these man cookies, cause I haven’t found a man yet who doesn’t like them, and subsequently devours them by the plate full (oh, you think I’m kidding?).

They’re straight forward cookies to bake – the secret to the chewy but moist chocolate chip oatmeal cookies, with a slightly crunchy perimeter, is the honey.   Chewy RAISIN Spelt Cookies Recipe version in notes at bottom…
