KnitKnit's Spice Cookies

I especially love baking in the winter months, as I'm guessing the rest of you probably do too. Baking breaks in between crafting are a must for my sanity. It's so warming and pleasing to the senses - sweet smell, sweet taste, sweet life! I had a hankerin' for some cookies, and came up with this recipe with what I had in my pantry. My baking buddy came over later in the day and ate 5 cookies in a row!

2 cups white spelt or all purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
2 tbl. unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 tsp. curry powder
1 cup sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 cup ghee (or 1 stick butter), softened
1 cup coconut oil
2 large eggs
1 1/2 cups oats
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
1/4 cup walnuts

Mix the dry ingredients together, add the ghee (or butter) and coconut oil, crack in the eggs and fold in the oats, chocolate chips, and walnuts. Plop tablespoon sized balls on a cookie sheet and bake at 375 degrees for 10 min. Makes 3 dozen!!!

I hope you enjoy my experimental baking!
