Whole Wheat Cinnamon Cookies

I haven't made cookies in YEARS!! Since I began a high-raw diet high in fresh fruit, I naturally indulge less in baked sweets. But I do enjoy them from time to time. Especially making them and sharing with friends.

I was craving cinnamon so googled "whole wheat cinnamon cookies" since I intentionally don't have any white flour in the house. I found this recipe. I modified it to make it even healthier and with Marga's help, baked some fab cookies!

Whole Wheat Cinnamon Sugar Cookies

1 c. muscovado sugar
1 t. baking powder
1/2 t. salt
1/2 t. baking soda
1/2 t. nutmeg
1/2 cup softened coconut oil
3 T. milk
1 T. orange rind
1 t. vanilla extract
1 egg, beaten
2 c. whole wheat flour
2 T. organic white sugar
1/2 t. cinnamon

In a large bowl, combine the muscovado sugar, baking powder, salt, soda, nutmeg, coco oil, milk, orange rind, vanilla, and egg. Blend well. Stir in flour. Cover and chill for 30 to 60 minutes.

On a lightly floured surface, roll out dough to 1/8 inch thickness. Cut with floured cutters. Place on ungreased cookie sheets, 2 inches apart.

Combine the 2 T. sugar and cinnamon. Sprinkle over cookies.

Bake cookies at 375 degrees for 8 to 10 minutes, or until lightly golden brown. Let stand one minute. Remove from cookie sheets and cool.

Makes about 36 cookies.
