Oatmeal, Walnut and Dried Plum Cookies
(via The Kind Diet)
1 cup quick-cooking rolled oats
3/4 c unbleached all-purpose flour
1/3 c maple sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp fine sea salt
1/3 c maple syrup
1/2 c safflower oil
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon molasses (I used blackstrap)
1/4 c chopped dried plums or other dried fruit
1/4 c finely chopped walnuts
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Combine the oats, flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a large bowl. in a separate bowl, combine the syrup, oil, vanilla extract, and molasses. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, and stir to combine. Fold in the dried plums and nuts.
Using your hands, roll tablespoon-size scoops of dough into balls. Place the balls onto the prepared baking sheet, and press down slightly on the balls to flatten the tops. Bake for 8 to 12 minutes or until lightly browned. Transfer cookies to a baking rack to col completely.
For variety, replace the all-purpose flour with whole-wheat pastry flour, barley flour, spelt flour, or a gluten-free baking mix (choose one that does not include baking soda and baking powder). You can also substitute chocolate chips for the dried fruit and any kind of nuts for the walnuts.
Tallulah's notes: I didn't have maple sugar, so I just used regular, but I think the maple's a little healthier. I used canola instead of safflower oil. I used half chocolate chips and half raisins. These were SO delicious, and stayed fresh longer than cookies made with butter and eggs.Something Witty

Today I have prepared a vegetable-based dish.
I started with a huge chunk of iceberg lettuce. Then I shredded this and placed it into a large bowl.
I added cheese, leftover hamburger meat, sour cream, and tortilla chips.
Then I decided that, since this was a salad, I could spoil myself.
I poured some bacon ranch dressing over the entire thing.

Lime crepes with Nutella, nothing fancy. Rest was leftovers.
