Sing along now, ”C is for cookie, and that’s good enough for me!”  Love, love Sesame Street tunes!

Black currants? What’s that you ask?  They look like tiny little raisins.  When I bought my first container of currants I was a little hesitant.  I’m not a big fan of soft raisins, prunes or apricots.  Black currants, however, are sweet and have just the right texture for my palate.

I like to throw a handful of currants in salads, served over a stew, in a homemade sprouted trail mix and of course in, cookie batter!

These cookies are SWEET!  Try to resist the urge to add chocolate chips.  I promise you’ll love’ em.

2/3 cup of coconut oil (can use organic butter)
1 cup local maple sugar (can use sucanat)
1 egg
1 1/4 cup of spelt or rice flour (I use both)
1 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup of coconut
1 tsp of aluminum free baking powder
1 tsp of aluminum free baking soda
1 cup of dried black currants

Blend the first three ingredients in a bowl really well.  Mix remaining ingredients in a seperate bowl, except for currants.  Add dry ingredients to the wet and mix well.  Fold in the black currants.  Place a spoonful of batter on cookie sheet.  Press each cookie slightly down with a fork.

I bake these at 350 degrees for about 12 minutes.  I use a pre-heated stone to bake mine so timing may vary.  Be warned that these can over cook easily so keep watch.

Yesterday started with 5 minutes of prayer on my back deck followed by another 10 minutes of watering my thirsty flowers around the yard. I avoided the inside of my home because it was really overwhelming to think about the hours of housework that needed my attention. I was so overwhelmed by the clutter, the filth, the toppled up dishes, the insanity of my fridge and the hazy space of each room.

It was when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis another few months later that my holistic nutritionist, mentor and friend suggested I eat nutrient dense, local, free-range meats three times daily. Our immune system, our red blood cells, our thyroid and adrenals are made up of protein that form anti-bodies to help fight infections, increase circulation, and make hormones.

In Melissa Joan Hart’s words on how motherhood has changed her, “I feel much more run down and have a lot less time for the simple things like reading a book and dinner with friends. Tonight’s pleas to read those 5 books before bedtime might come with hesitation on my part but end with 25 gentle kisses and hugs and his love in return.
