Wheat Germ Cookies from King Arthur Flour

As you can see above Gingerbread Man is weighted down big time with cookies at the moment! 😉 That didn’t last long though, these cookies disappeared fast from his ample belly!

I’m a big fan of wheat germ in all kinds of baking. 

Wheat germ is a concentrated source of iron, B and E vitamins and protein. Also contains several trace minerals. Tastes great too.

What’s not to love? 🙂

I’ve made these Wheat Germ Cookies from the King Arthur flour site many times and they are consistently delish.

And oh so easy to make. The “hit” of nutmeg makes all the difference, don’t leave it out! 

As with most recipes, I did a bit of personal tweaking:

-I toasted the wheat germ slightly, before using.

-Added a 1/2 C. of toasted coconut to the mix.

-I rounded the whole wheat flour to 1 C.

-Cut back on the sugar to 1/2 C.

-Made larger cookies, about 30.

All optional changes  the recipe is good just as given on their site too.

Happy Baking!
