Some days are touchy.
You know those days.
Those days where everything is “the last straw”.
You’ve already woken up on the wrong side of the bed.
The edges of your nostrils are already dry and scratchy.
The pile of kleenex beside your bed provided a full day’s funding to BC Forestry.
You didn’t run yesterday, therefor didn’t shower, therefor your hair is as flat as kate moss’ backside. Except for that one piece that dares to defy gravity. (Or if you’re me, every piece that decides to defy gravity in a different direction)
You know that it’s Tuesday, and you have none of the false optimism you mustered together to wake up Monday morning, and all of the pessimism that brewed by Monday afternoon.
You also remembered that your favourite pants, the ones you wear on crummy days because at least if your day is crummy you’ll be wearing nice pants, yeah those ones, are still in the washer because you were naive enough to think that you would have woken up half an hour ago to start the dryer.
You know those days. If one person so much as takes your parking spot, it’s over. Full-on, in-vehicle, snotty, blotchy, teary-eyed melt-down.
The kind of day where you wouldn’t want someone to give you a tray of cookies, only to tell you that eating more than one of said cookies may hinder your ability to fit into aforementioned pants.
Fear not readers.
These cookies are kind. They are the kind of cookie that coaxes you upstairs, ignores your unsightly bed-head, and lets you know that it’s going to be a good day.
Of course it’s a good day.
You’re eating cookies for breakfast. Good-for-you types of cookies. Soft, yummy, slightly citrusy types of cookies.
Citrus Oatmeal Spelt Cookies
Preheat Oven to 350 F
Mix dry ingredients (up to baking soda) in a bowl. In another bowl, cream together the butter and agave, then beat in the egg, orange peel and mashed banana. Combine wet and dry. The dough will be sticky, so I suggest using a tablespoon or small cookie scoop to drop cookies onto a lined (w/ parchment or non-stick sheet) baking sheet. Bake for 10-12 mins. Makes about 20.
