The Easiest Vegetarian Honey Cinnamon Cookies

So this Sunday was one of those Sundays when I didn’t care to put too much effort into anything. But! I have wanted to make some of these cookies for the longest time… and what a better day for that than the first Sunday of September?! :)

Overcoming my mood, I have gathered my ingredients and looking at them I realized that these may well be the easiest vegetarian cookies ever. Easy and quick, and so very much delicious.

The taste reminds me of the long summers I spent at my grandparents’ somewhere far north-west of Bulgaria. Now and then, picking the laziest of afternoons, my Granny used to make honey-cinnamon cookies for all of us children, filling in the whole house with the most delightful and comforting smell – honey and cinnamon, the smell of my childhood.

These cookies make a wonderful healthy vegetarian snack to go with coffee, tea or yogurt even. You may alter some of the ingredients or add in different spices to create a variation to your taste. In any case, you will love them! So simple to make and so guilt-free to eat :)

Enjoy!

Ingredients:

3 cups of whole-wheat flour

¾ cup (or 3-4 tbsp) of honey

1 cup of warm water

½ cup of sunflower oil

1 tsp of baking soda

3-4 tsp of cinnamon

* Use as much honey as you like to make the cookies as sweet as you like!

** To make the cookies vegan substitute honey for an alternative sweetener such as stevia, unrefined cane sugar, coconut sugar, agave nectar, maple syrup

*** The ingredients will make for 16-18 cookies

Instructions:

  1. Pre-heat your oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
  2. In a bowl, dissolve the honey in the warm water and add in the sunflower oil, stir a little bit more until no trace of the honey is left.
  3. Add in the dry ingredients to the wet mixture – the whole-wheat flour, baking soda and cinnamon. Combine together with a spoon/fork until you get a nicely blended mixture that will look wet and feel sticky. If you fancy soft cookies, leave the ‘dough’ wet, if you prefer the cookies a bit crunchy, add in more flour.
  4. Oil your hands and start to form medium-sized ball-like shapes, place them one by one on the baking tray with enough space in-between. As you work with oily hands, there is no need to use baking paper or oil the baking tray itself.
  5. Bake for 15-20 minutes…

…and Voila! :)
