I made some vanilla ice cream sweetened with honey and experimented with cookies to make them healthier….plus were out of flour!

The ice cream was:
3 egg yolks
2 cans evaporated milk
1/2 honey
1tsp vanilla or 1 vanilla bean
Milk

I took the egg yolks and whisked it in milk over low-med heat. I tried to let it thicken, but c’mon i just wanted to eat it! So i quickly dissolved the honey(you can do less if you like, about 1/3 but definitely no less!) and added the extract. Ideally real vanilla bean would have been much more flavorful! Then i poured it into our little ice cream maker-2 qt- and filled it with milk the rest of the way.

For the cookies-i tried to do them sugarless, in fact i think i might use less next time because of all the other “sweeteners”

The cookies were:
2 cups ground oats (measured preground)
Plus i used real oats since it was a little less than 2 cups
1/4 cups flour
1/2 tsp baling soda
1/2 tsp salt

3/4 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 over ripe banana

1 egg
2 tsp vanilla

2 cups mixed raisins and craisins
1 1/2 cups toasted coconut

300• cooked for about 20 min

Whisk the first three ingredients, in a mixer mix butter, brown sugar, and banana. Add egg and vanilla. Add dry whisked powders and then mix in the craisin/raisin mixture and toasted coxonut.

Next time i need to add more dry ingredients to make up for the lessened sugar ratio. Also i would like to lessen the brown sugar content! They came out really flat almost like laceys and i had to keep turning down the heat so the bottoms wont get too burned! But overall, i would probably add more ground oats and maybe flax seed instead of all that sugar! And they cooked for so long because of the lowered temp!

But i love them! They might even taste better the next day!!
