Okay, friends... i like wheat germ.
i buy it all the time. i love to sprinkle it on my oatmeal and add it to my protein shakes. the funny thing about me always having this on hand... is
i grew up in a house with a LOT of wheat germ. my mom was always making crazy shakes and sneaking it into lots of goods. in fact, once i got to college i started buying it for no reason other than i thought you had to have wheat germ in your fridge. :) so now, always have a ton and it was nice to use a full cup of it in a recipe!
this week for my Tuesdays with Dorie baking group, we made Honey-wheat Cookies. The recipe was hosted by Michelle at Flourchild. (you can snag the recipe from her blog.)
but before you head over there. let me tell you how awesome these cookies tasted.
the combination of honey and lemon with the wheat germ was a real winner. they were wholesome, chewy and addictive. the batter was delicious too! i let mine refrigerate overnight and think it really helped the flavors marry.
They were fun to make. I loved rolling them in the wheat germ and then pressing them down with the bottom of a cup. They were so soft! and...aren't they just cute?
based on my pictures, you should gather that they didn't last long. i didn't have time to set up a descent shot because we scarfed 'em down!
I loved these cookies. When I have kids I think these will be the perfect after school snack!
Next week: Toasted Coconut Custard Tart (already made it and it was delightful!)
