A handful of instances all year long, my household drives to our favourite brunch spot situated about an hour away from our home. It’s a family-owned restaurant with a couple of areas sprinkled round Northern California, and it’s at all times well worth the trek.
As quickly as we stroll by the door, we glance round and attempt to discover our favourite waiter. Even when we’re seated in one other server’s part, he nonetheless stops by our desk to say hello and provides us hugs.
Though we often arrive within the very late morning or proper round lunchtime, we nonetheless order from the breakfast menu—and nearly at all times the identical issues! Mother switches between the huevos rancheros and steamed veggies with scrambled eggs, my brother opts for a country-style hash brown skillet (he’s allergic to eggs, which eliminates 90% of the menu!), Dad picks an omelette from the specials, and I’m going with the steamed veggies with egg whites or hen.
But the most effective elements of the meal are at all times the towering slices of heat, supremely tender blueberry espresso cake topped with candy cinnamon streusel… Served with further butter, for those who’re like my mother and father!
On our final go to, the restaurant was a lot busier than normal, so we stood subsequent to the hostess stand for a couple of minutes till a desk cleared. As we waited, I glanced up on the chalkboard within the entryway, which listed their seasonal specials and a collection of baked gadgets of their glass show case.
My eye instantly jumped to the latter (no surprises there!), and my eyes lit up on the description of their harvest cookies: oatmeal cookies made with complete wheat flour, raisins, dried cranberries, nuts, coconut, and honey. I even pulled out my telephone to snap a fast image so I might recreate them at dwelling!
And that’s precisely what I did! These Wholesome Harvest Cookies comprise the identical components as those from our favourite restaurant. They’re extraordinarily mushy and chewy (simply the way in which I like my cookies!), and I don’t should drive an hour to get them anymore!
Even higher? Theses wholesome harvest cookies are very easy to make (no mixer required!) and don’t have any refined flour or sugar. Plus they’re simply 104 energy!
