Honey Nut Cookies

These Honey Nut Cookies were inspired by Wedderspoon’s Manuka Honey, which I received in the mail just last week.  I’m usually not a huge honey fan; I bake with it occasionally, but prefer using maple syrup.  However, things may change around here with this new honey I have on my hands.  In all honesty, I have never tasted a honey with such rich flavor and a thick, viscous texture – it is pure magic to the taste buds.

Wedderspoon’s Manuka honey is 100% raw and non-GMO.  This company cares about creating a sustainable product that is both good for the environment, the individual and the bees.  As a honey producer, their goal is to “deliver superior quality Manuka and gourmet honey without burdening the environment or [their] friends the honeybees!”  They treat the bees like family, creating a high-quality product that you can feel good about consuming.
