Confession: I love brown sugar.
I usually judge whether a recipe is going to be good or not based on the amount of brown sugar that will be dumped in.
lots = good
not so much = not so good
I'm pretty sure it's healthy too.
Brown rice: healthy
Dark chocolate: healthy
Unbleached flour: healthy
deep colored fruits and vegetables: healthy
Brown sugar: healthy
Yep, it's all pretty logical.
Brown sugar is good. You should eat a lot of it.
At least on Fat Friday.
*Tomorrow, this confession will be dissolved and all brown sugar will magically poof into natural sweeteners used in moderation.
Lunch Box Oatmeal Cookies
Drop dough by heaping teaspoonfuls, 2 inches apart, onto lightly greased cookie sheets. Top with a few m&m's. Bake for 9 to 11 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Let stand 1 minute on cookie sheets; remove to wire cooling rack.

1 c. rolled oats
1 c. flour
1 c. brown sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 c. butter
Mix dry ingredients. Using a pastry blender, cut in butter. Mix well until it becomes a nice crumbly texture. Set aside.
6-8 cups peaches, peeled and sliced
1 c. blueberries (fresh or frozen)
To quickly peel peaches, drop in boiling water for about 30 seconds. The skin will peel off easily. Slice and place in large casserole dish or 9x13 pan. Toss in blueberries. Sprinkle the fruit with a little sugar and cornstarch.
Poor crumbly topping over fruit. Bake at 350 degrees for 30-45 minutes until topping is golden brown. Serve warm.
