Stress Relief Cookies

Baking with herbal tea leaves. . .

I had to read this recipe three times to make sure I read it correctly - "contents of one tea bag." 

The recipe was delivered to my inbox, and I could not locate it anywhere online, so I'm sharing it here.

The tea you will need to buy, is made with organic herbs and is non-gmo. 

Yogi tea brands are available in most stores.  This is not to advertise their teas.  I'm just sharing, because the recipe intrigued me.  You need Honey-Lavender tea. 

The recipes states it makes 13 cookies, so I gave it a try.  I've never had a "lavender" cookie, nor grown that specific type of lavender.

I actually got 15 cookies, and I used parchment paper.  They bake up soft.

Results?  Oh my.  These not only smelled wonderful, but also tasted wonderful.  I used only organic ingredients, and some local pure maple syrup.

I buy my flaxseed ground, organic, and non-gmo as well.  

I've had this recipe for months and months, but just got around to making it.  

Yogi, always has a nice, fun, or motivational message on their tea bags too.  I typically make my teas from whole, homegrown tea leaves, but these teabags will make a few more batches of Stress Relief Cookies.  The family loved these.

Heehee! Since a cookie often provides stress relief for a lot of people, these would be a double dose!

Mama Pea, the kids said the same thing, ha ha! They were so good I went out and bought more butter to make more this week.

Susan said...

I may try and make a GF version of these - any help I can get! Especially when it tastes so good...

Pioneer Woman at Heart said...

Susan, they were very good. I couldn't believe how much the family asked for more of them, ha ha!

RB said...

Why are the cookies white? I was thinking they might've been sprinkled with powdered sugar, but the recipe doesn't say that.
God bless.

Pioneer Woman at Heart said...

RB, they are a bit tan colored. Made with butter.

Leah said...

Oh!! I use those tea bags in my bath salts I make for people but I never tried the cookie recipe!! That looks yummy I might have to try.

Pioneer Woman at Heart said...

Leah, I was shocked at how good they tasted.

You article is wonderful... I was not acquainted with a well-known proven fact that the easy lavender might resolve the issue. Let me include a few additional treatments that can end up being advantageous as well. For instance Yoga and meditation. These things are pretty good to cope with anxiety disorders. Thanks for your publish and detail solutions!!!

Laurie there are other herbs in the tea as well as lavender. I simply tried the recipe the tea company provided (using their tea).
