twd: Honey Wheat Cookies - A Sweet Surprise

Talk about a sweet surprise - these cookies have wheat germ, honey, lemon, and no chocolate. It sounds more like a Tazo tea or an herbal cold remedy than a cookie. But let me tell you, I'm so glad Dorie included these in her book, and Michelle of Flourchild picked these.Besides being super easy to make, the cookies sprung up like little sponges. Following last week's flat-attack, it was nice to see these little babies emerge from the oven, wheat germ covered and all.Until today, I had no idea about wheat germ. It has protein and essential vitamins and is great for non-meat eaters and body builders. Well, at least that's what the ever-truth-telling internet revealed. I'm glad I know now, and that I couldn't resist tasting a little. Its not bad, kind of nutty, and will be great on my yogurt instead of oats.

Glad you enjoyed them! I thought they were ok, but probably won't make them again.

the close up shot of the wheat germ on the cookie is outstanding.

It was a nice break from chocolate.

I love how rounded yours turned out...and you can see the nutty little goodness of that wheat germ so nicely. We loved these. I kept making cups of tea so I could have an excuse to have another cookie.
