This 1939 Health Biscuits Recipe – isn’t ‘healthy’ in the way we might think of healthy today. It’s more of an energy cookie; packed with sugar and fat it’ll get you over that mid afternoon hump when you’re out in the field bailing hay. Or before you head to the barn for the 4:30am milking. Probably not great for snacking on the couch; but they sure are tasty and that’s we did.
Ingredients:
1 egg
½ cup butter
½ cup shortening
1 cup brown sugar
1 tsp soda
¾ cup chopped dates
¾ cup chopped walnuts
¾ cup raisins
2 cups rolled oats
2 cups whole wheat flour
¼ tsp salt
(enough sour milk to hold together)

Method:
Mix ingredients with enough sour milk to hold together and drop on buttered pan.

***The recipe is written above in the way I found it in the recipe book.
– I used kefir, but buttermilk is what they mean in the recipe by sour milk. I didn’t measure, but it felt like ¾ – 1 cup
of kefir.
– I baked them in 350ºF oven for 10-12 minutes

Owen w · April 15, 2019 at 12:45 am

I was just wondering where in Canada do you live

Ali · April 15, 2019 at 12:45 am

These videos are so relaxing. Just someone talking while cooking, no overproduction and music and edits or anything. Awesome

Taylor Made · April 15, 2019 at 12:45 am

Been Binge watching your videos for days now. There’s just something about the lovely studio kitchen, the quietness and absence of background music, and your wonderful ways of filming and talking to us that makes me feel so happy and cozy! Absolutely love you guys and this channel! Keep going woo!

OptimalB · April 15, 2019 at 12:45 am

this channel is the most wholesome channel out there

Andrew Harper · April 15, 2019 at 12:45 am

My autistic brother watches those ASMR soap cutting videos, they linked him to those terribly unhealthy cooking videos that are everywhere nowadays (you know what I'm talking about) and eventually your Pemberton's cola recipe video came into the feed, I always enjoy making my spiced apple juice at Christmas leading to my love of drink making, my subsequent interest in your video arose and here we are.
Love your vids, keep up the good work, having the spice cake recipe for my birthday 😊

ryan_the gay_donkey · April 15, 2019 at 12:45 am

What part of Canada do you live in if you don't mind saying

Chris Ashby · April 15, 2019 at 12:45 am

I burn Eggos in my toaster, why am I watching this. Lol just kidding, This was awesome.

Vitari_Allie · April 15, 2019 at 12:45 am

Oh my gosh your gray bowl set is gorgeous! Can I ask a brand or where you got them?

Ben Gibbons · April 15, 2019 at 12:45 am

came here from reddit, and i’m honestly sad to see that you don’t have more subs… thank you for making videos 🙂

Matheus Vinicius · April 15, 2019 at 12:45 am

Best Channel

Fried Chicken And Monarchism · April 15, 2019 at 12:45 am

I just recently discovered this channel. The most Canadian thing ever. I love it.

David Chang · April 15, 2019 at 12:45 am

Hello, was your cookie scoop equal to a tablespoon of cookie dough? I subscribed btw!

Zade More · April 15, 2019 at 12:45 am

WELCOME FRIENDS wow your channel is blowing up! I've been here since 30k, you gained 70,000 subs in one day! 😮

dan nast · April 15, 2019 at 12:45 am

Is it me or does this channel have a calming and soothing effect. Thank you so much. Much love from your friends in North Carolina.

kari senchi · April 15, 2019 at 12:45 am

i'm so glad i stumbled into this channel while looking for vintage recipes, these are incredibly well done and interesting. I just wish there were more details on how to make them in the videos but just putting a text in the description is fine, thanks for that.

SJMC · April 15, 2019 at 12:45 am

Oh wow, this channel really blew up. Subscribed a few days ago, look back and you're at 100k! Much love Glen!

Claptrap Army · April 15, 2019 at 12:45 am

Congratulations on the 100k subscribers 😀

Pasha · April 15, 2019 at 12:45 am

Why not coconut?

Maunster! · April 15, 2019 at 12:45 am

What would Mrs. Fred Oakes say today?

thatscottish guy · April 15, 2019 at 12:45 am

You deserve more subscribers great content

Ed ash · April 15, 2019 at 12:45 am

you need to look up history on LARD, and why we changed..

Minute Man · April 15, 2019 at 12:45 am

I assume they used butter and shortening because butter is expensive. If I were to make this recipe I would use all butter for the fat, or substitute lard for the (I assume) vegetable oil shortening.

Mike B · April 15, 2019 at 12:45 am

I don't know how this channel got in my feed, but I'm happy it did. I am a grandson of a Irish american who's mother lived through the great potato famine and the great depression in america. Most would consider me his third son.
The question is what makes this healthy? Is the fiber assuming that this recipe makes 24 cookies each cookie has 11% of you daily dietary fiber.
The other thing about depression/post depression era things had to last with the brown sugar dates and raisins and shortening in the cookie they would stay soft and moist for a few days if the ever lasted so long.

LovingAtlanta · April 15, 2019 at 12:45 am

👍😋This is the exact same recipe my MeMa used to make…we call them oatmeal cookies. 💞

FirstDagger · April 15, 2019 at 12:45 am

Yes! Tell people about that Kefir goodness.

kaiser der variante · April 15, 2019 at 12:45 am

And i thought food during the depression era was seasoned with tears😐🤣✌️

Royal Media · April 15, 2019 at 12:45 am

I was just scrolling on YouTube and came across this channel. I'm in love now. I've watched almost all of your videos, Glen, and I just subscribed. Keep up the great work!

Thums · April 15, 2019 at 12:45 am

Awesome video quality and content, no surprise it is popping up on everybody’s recommendations. Keep up the good work👍

NoJusticeNoPeace · April 15, 2019 at 12:45 am

I was always taught not to crack eggs directly over whatever I'm baking, since if the egg is rotten, I will have ruined the whole batch.

Last Juan Standing · April 15, 2019 at 12:45 am

I LOVE THIS CHANNEL

joelle Watkins · April 15, 2019 at 12:45 am

I love your channel! However you were kinda wrong about the milk today. Back in 1938 and earler they would have used sour milk as in gone off . Now if sour milk was not on hand they would have used a substitute like you did. They did notlike to wast food so there are a few recipes that would use it up.

Jacob Mason · April 15, 2019 at 12:45 am

Wow

1:42

watch out one almost fell out

Hastybananas · April 15, 2019 at 12:45 am

All the subs coming from that cola video. Im enjoying this channel. Bless up

JP · April 15, 2019 at 12:45 am

How do I know this couple will live to over 100

Daniel Ehrmantraut · April 15, 2019 at 12:45 am
