Lots of celebrating this weekend

It was a great weekend. I had a birthday, spent time with great friends and the men’s hockey team won gold.

Life can get back to normal, the Olympics are closed. The energy was on high all the way to the end – what a hockey game. National free yoga day was also this weekend and we celebrated with a class on Saturday. There was a great turn out and a lot of new faces. Thank you for everyone who came and to Violet for the amazing cookies. The perfect post-yoga treat. Here’s the recipe, try them!

Sivananda Cookies

3 cups plus 1 tablespoon rolled oats
3/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon whole wheat flour
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup raisins or golden raisins
1/3 cup raw unsalted peanuts*
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 1/2 teaspoons ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons oil
About 3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons water

Heat the oven to 400 degrees F. Grease two or three baking sheets. Combine the dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl, add the oil, and mix thoroughly. Stir in enough water to make a firm dough.
Take a spoonful of dough, about the size of a ping-pong ball. Roll it into a ball, place on one of the baking sheets, and flatten to a circle about 4 inches in diameter. Repeat to make 12 cookies. Bake in the oven for 12 to 15 minutes, until golden at the edges. Cool on a wire rack.
* Use sunflower seeds, roughly chopped almonds, and/or unsweetened dried coconut instead of, or as well as, the unsalted peanuts.
Makes 12

    Yes, this is the same recipe, just tweaked a little from the one in my book; I will send the version I have, plus how I in turn tweaked mine! But not until tomorrow. Good night!
