5-Star Honey and Maple-Sweetened Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Granddaughter Luna declared these her favorite cookies of all that I have ever made. She and brother Nico scarfed down four each before I realized how many they were eating and put the plate of cookies out of their reach. That should be the only endorsement you need to make these cookies. They are really delicious.  If you don’t want to use maple sugar (or don’t have any) then just use brown sugar instead.

Please let me know if you try this recipe. I’d love to hear what you think.

Happy baking and eating!
