Hi! My name is Pamela from Pamela's Heavenly Treats, where I make healthy cupcakes and cookies mainly, I will dabble in other desserts if need be. I make all my treats with 100% whole wheat flour and I have a few special ingredients that I add also, to give my healthy treats that moist, delicious taste. Today I am going to make Whole Wheat Citrus Vanilla Cookies, these cookies are so moist and cake like, this is a very simple recipe, if you follow it; you will have a heavenly healthy treat.
1 1/3 cup whole wheat flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup unsalted butter (softened)
1 cup light brown sugar
2 tbsp orange zest
2 tbsp fresh buttermilk
2 tsp vinegar
2 tsp vanilla
Mix wet ingredients, and then add in your dry ingredients, you will notice that the texture of the batter is like a cake batter, that is fine that's how it's supposed to be.
Use a small scoop and put 12-15 scoops on your parchment paper covered baking sheet. Bake on 350 for 10 minutes. Cool on a wire rack. Your kitchen will smell like an orange orchard when they come out the oven.
Once they are cooled, you can leave as they are, or do like I did and make them all neat and the same size, and cut out with a round cutter. These cake like cookies can also be used to make cookie sandwiches, where you pipe frosting on one side of cookie and put another on top.
I want to thank Mar for allowing me to guest post on her lovely blog. Please come and visit me over at Pamela's Heavenly Treats and I also have an Etsy Shop where you can get my healthy cupcake/cookie/bread/brownie mixes.
