Crushed Walnut and Raisin Cookies

Hello everyone, I hope your week has been well. Today I have another quick baking recipe featuring raisins and walnuts.

These cookies taste so good!! Plus, they are light and airy. I feel like these would be perfect for gifting a friend or family member and even great for yourself if you want a little treat that’s not too sweet. I don’t usually bake with walnuts but they work really well in cookies because of how soft they are after being baked. Walnuts provide an essential fat that we need in the body, often known as a mood booster because they aid in the function and development of the central nervous system.

Walnuts also contain vitamin E, biotin and manganese. They can be added to most cakes, cookies and brownies or sprinkled over your porridge.
