I wanted to share a very easy and healthy cookie recipe with you all today! It’s super easy to make and it can be all done in one bowl! You don’t need loads of supplies and ingredients to make these tasty cookies. Anyone can whip these up! In fact my 5 year old loves to help me make them. It’s definitely an children friendly recipe.
I love having healthy go to snacks available for my family, like these cookies. Everyone is always busy but it’s super easy to pack up these cookies and hit the road. I find packing healthy cookies and treats will save me from purchasing unhealthy goodies throughout the day. If hunger strikes I like having something with me in the car or my backpack to eat. Cookies like this that are filled with real ingredients, offer nourishment and you will be that much more likely to get to your next meal. You don’t want to be starving by the time your next meal comes. Snacks like this help tremendously for me personally.
You can use any type of flour you have on hand for this recipe. I will only say that you might need to add a little more milk to the batter if necessary. If you find that it’s too dry then add a little milk slowly to the bowl and combine well. My favourite flour to use is spelt flour when I make these cookies but I also use other types when needed. It will still taste good regardless of what you decide to use. I like creating recipes that allow flexibility because everyone has to work with what they have available to them. Due to the pandemic I know many places are experiencing food shortages. Grocery stores aren’t getting their full deliveries on products. We just have to work with what is currently available to us.
Fluffy Jam Filled Cookies
⁃ 2 cups Spelt Flour
⁃ 1/3 cup sugar
⁃ Sprinkle of salt
⁃ 1 tsp. Baking Powder
⁃ 1/3 cup Unsweetened Apple Sauce
⁃ 1 tsp. Pure Vanilla extract

⁃ 1/3 cup Jam ( l used Crab Apple Jam)
1. Preheat oven to 350 F.
2. Combine all the dry ingredients in a large bowl.
3. Next combine all the wet ingredients in a medium sized bowl.
4. Add the wet ingredients into the dry and combine well.
5. Place the dough on a lined baking pan. I do golf sized balls and place an indentation in each using a small teaspoon.
6. Add a little of the jam inside each cookie.
7. Bake at 350 F for 12-14minutes.
Note: You can use one bowl to make this recipe too! Add all the dry ingredients and then toss in the wet ingredients. I add 1/3 cup of milk first and depending on the type of flour I’m using. I will go ahead and add more milk if needed.
