Oatmeal Cookies

by Heather Harris Brady This cookie is not a cookie that has oatmeal, it is an oatmeal cookie where the oatmeal is primary, thick and chewy. It’s based on a recipe given by America’s Test Kitchen. Mine do not have raisins, because getting a raisin when you are expecting a chocolate chip is one of…

Whole Grain Pancakes

by Heather Harris Brady I’ve been experimenting a lot with whole grain flours lately, because I don’t want to settle for “wow, this is good for something healthy”. I’m going for “this is amazing”. So when I manage to hit that magical point I will share the recipes – like this one for whole grain…

Everything Scones

by Heather Harris Brady This recipe was inspired by the oat bran muffin recipe I have that I like so much. While these scones are whole grain, they are lighter and fluffier than many a coffeeshop scone. They are also very light on sugar. Feel free to make substitutions or additions to the mix-ins, that’s…

Buttermilk Oatmeal Bread

by Heather Harris Brady I’m going to spare you the details of the horrific sinus/cold/whatever I had last week and jump right into this week’s recipe. I’ve been experimenting with ways to cut down on our use of regular wheat flour, and incorporate a wider variety of grains into our menus. This bread uses some…

Double Berry Cookies

by Heather Harris Brady Judging by the amount of pie searches on this site it looks like a lot of you are baking, so rock on! As long as you have the oven on you might think about throwing in a batch of these cookies. They are based on one I grabbed from a local…

Snack-Ninja Energy Bars (Gluten Free)

by Heather Harris Brady I confess to being suspicious of tiny plastic cartons that cost $6.99, unless they contain dark chocolate sea salt caramels – in which case they are obviously worth the price. So when the DH brought home said carton and it was full of what appeared to be little more than grains…

Calico Cookies (Whole Grain)

by Heather Harris Brady These are made with butter and chips after all, so I’m not going to pretend this is a health-food post. That said, if you’re looking for ways to work more whole grains into the diet and still feel like you’re living life to the fullest these are crispy and delicious –…

Chocolate Chocolate-Chip Oatmeal Cookies

by Heather Harris Brady These cookies look pretty homey but fresh out of theĀ  oven they are freakin’ (that’s right, I said freakin’) amazing. They are thick, soft on the inside and crackly on the outside plus they’re super chocolately. I’ve posted my own recipe for this type of cookie before, but when I saw…

Chocolate Oatmeal Caramel Bars

by Heather Harris Brady Raise your hand if you have Parisian fantasies. Okay, now leave them up if yours include Dorie Greenspan. C’mon, I know you’re out there. And it’s okay. You’re among friends. Hopefully my husband isn’t reading this because I know it isn’t the stuff of which romance novels are made, but I…

Oatmeal Apple Cookie Slices

by Heather Harris Brady In my mind’s eye lately I’ve been thinking about a thick-ish oatmeal type bar cookie with fruit in the center, so when I saw this recipe I had to try it. These are probably one of the weirdest cookies I’ve ever made, but they are really delicious. There are thin apple…

Oatcakes (Oatmeal Crackers)

by Heather Harris Brady I’ve had a fascination with these since I acquired the little volume of Monica Sheridan’s Irish Cooking years ago. In it she talks about how her family would make these oatcakes, prop them in front of the peat fire to dry and eat them hot with lots of fresh butter. Alas…

Baked Oatmeal

by Heather Harris Brady I first had this dish at a lovely b&b, where they served this warm for breakfast with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top. I started looking into the recipe when I got home, and tested a few variations. I can see why it’s a regular on their menu, it’s…
