This recipe was used by my sister-in-law and seemed to work very well. It uses honey as sweetener instead of sugar.
INGREDIENTS (for 1 servings):
- 1 egg, beaten
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 2 tablespoons molasses
- 2 tablespoons vanilla extract
- 3/4 cup whole-wheat flour
- 1 1/2 tablespoons non-fat dry milk
- 1 tablespoon soy flour
- 1 tablespoon wheat germ
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
In a medium bowl, stir together the egg, honey, molasses and vanilla until well blended. Combine the whole-wheat flour, dry milk, soy flour and wheat germ; stir into the molasses mixture until a smooth dough forms. On a lightly floured surface, roll dough out to 1/4 inch thickness. Cut in to finger length strips, and place onto an ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake for 15 minutes in the preheated oven, until firm. Cool and store in an airtight container at room temperature.
Note:Avoid feeding honey to children under the age of 1 year due to the risk of infant botulism.
