In your recipe for Bedtime Chamomile cookies, you say to pulse half of the rolled oats into the flour. I can not find flour as an ingredient listed in the recipe. Please tell me how much flour. Thank you

Hey there. Step #2 in the recipe directions is pulsing half the rolled oats into flour. So there is NO additional flour used in this recipe. Enjoy these sleepy, comforting, cozy cookies! xx
I made and love those. I probably used a bit more chamomile, added one all spice seed and a cinnamon blossom.
They are a bit to sweet for my taste, especialy given the fact, that they are “functional” cookies, but thats a reather subjectiv opinion and most conventional treats are way to sweet to please me, so it really is not a point of critique.
The texture and flavor profile are heavenly and make up a very cozey, soothing treat. The layers created by almond, oat, honey and chamomile make them taste very interesting, round and satisfying, so one enjoys eating them, but is less inclined to devour all of them in rapid sucsession.
I will definitly make a larger batch again, but try to lower the amount of honey.

Glad you gave them a try & excited that you will make them again! xx
