These cookies are very tasty, like eat-six-in-the-space-of-an-evening kind of tasty (which of course isn’t something I have ever done..). They are also super easy and use honey as a sweetener. The “To eat or not to eat” refined sugar argument isn’t something I’ve looked into a huge amount but I’m always keen to reduce the amount of processed foods I eat so hopefully it’s a start in the right direction..!
This recipe is adapted from The Lean Machines and uses spelt flour which adds more texture and sultanas which I find much juicier than raisins. The addition of cranberries and orange zest and juice does add a Christmas-y vibe but live life like Wizzard and enjoy these all year round.
