Single Dad Cookie

   Over at Chocolate Covered Katie's blog she makes all sorts of yummy single serving things like cookies and cupcakes! She calls them single lady cupcakes/cookies.
    Well i've been dying to make one and since my dad loves cookies so much I decided to surprise him when he got home from work...well I called him to tell him about them because I was to excited. So it wasn't as much of a surprise. 
The cookie turned out great! so here you go a single lady cookie turned into a single dad cookie. :)

Single Dad Cookie
serves: one of course or two if you want to share.

4 tsp spelt flour(any flour will do, i'm sure)
1/16th tsp baking soda
1/16th tsp salt
2 tsp olive oil
1 tsp vanilla almond milk(I used unsweetened)
handful of dried blueberries
handful of chopped almonds
2 tsp 100% pure maple syrup or maybe maple sugar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine dry then add in wet ingredients or the other way around however you want. Then mix well with a fork. Pour the batter onto a oiled, buttered, or parchment papered baking sheet. Cook for about 8 minutes or until done.

(look at how the dried blueberries are exactly like each on one end and one perfectly in the middle)

   This cookie was sweet, but not overly sweet which is my favorite thing if I make a cookie. I was glad because I wasn't to sure about how much maple syrup to do and was afraid it would either be not sweet enough or to sweet.

In fact this cookie was so good I doubled the recipe and made another larger one for dessert after dinner. That time I added 2 tsp flax meal for a nice nuttier taste and I only did 3 tsp olive oil. It turned out great great as well. I have even been asked to make this cookie again, but make a whole batch of them goes to show how good they are...or maybe how much my dad likes sweet things...or both.
