I received the products from the Nature Nate’s for this post part of #Choctoberfest 2016.#HoneyGivesHope &#HoneyMakesItBetter. However all opinions is mine.
My kids love chocolate chips cookies and that are a safe bet when it comes to baking for them. I was looking forward to bake with honey in cookies and cakes for a long time. I have baked bread with honey but never tried any baked goodies only with honey. I have seen recipes of cupcakes and frosting with, but since it is not chocolate cupcakes I don’t have any takers at home. So I decided to make this Honey oatmeal chocolate chip cookies only with honey as sweetener.
As part of the Choctoberfest 2016 by Nature Nate’s , I received a bottle of Raw unfiltered Honey, honey strawberry syrup and individual packets of honey we can use in tea or any other beverages or even salad. I made this honey chocolate chip cookies using raw unfiltered honey. What I like about these cookies is the subtle sweetness of honey and that the use of honey made the cookies soft. While searching for the recipes of cookies with honey I was able to find only one recipe that too with flour and chocolate chips. Others are using honey combined with sugar, but I don’t want to do to use any sugar. So I modified the recipe according to my kid’s taste buds adding cinnamon to go with honey.
When you baking with honey you need to take care of these points, for every 1 cup of sugar use only 2/3 cup, then reduce the amount of liquid content in the recipe by ¼ cup. Add ½ teaspoon of baking soda to every cup of honey and finally bake at less than 25 degree Fahrenheit than the recipe called to prevent over browning when honey is used.
My daughter enjoyed eating the cookies and told me to make it again. But my son is not that fond of it. According to him, it is less sweet. If you are looking for highly sweet oatmeal chocolate chips cookies then you may need to add at least ¼ cup sugar. If you like subtle sweetness in your baked goodies, this recipe is good. I used ¾ cup chocolate chips, you can increase the chocolate chips to 1 cup. I like the combo of nutty oatmeal, sublime honey and chocolate chips. If you like soft oatmeal cookies give it try you will love it.
I also like Nature Nate’s initiative to support breast cancer awareness, as I have personal stories attached to breast cancer. My mother-in-law is breast cancer survivor, and she had mastectomy on left breast. She has suffered through lot of pain, but she is a warrior who won fight against breast cancer. But she still suffers from the effects of the drugs and the surgery. Cancer took away my aunt (dad’s sister). To get his PhD my hubby studied the use of photodynamic therapy for curing various kinds of cancer. I always feel we are progressing in our fight against cancer, but we are far away in being able to eradicative cancer. Lots of women are suffering from breast cancer and every mammogram brings surprise and heart breaks for them. Nature Nate Honey is doing a wonderful gesture by partnering with National Breast Cancer Foundation to give hope to those women who are suffering from Breast Cancer that there is light at the end of the tunnel.
