Distillers Grains Cookies

On the Nebraska Agribusiness Club Tour, club treasurer, Gerri Monahan shared sample of cookies made from distillers grains. This was very fitting as we had just toured the ethanol plant where distillers grains are produced.

However, the distillers grains that Gerri used in the cookies were actually made from wheat distillers that are a food grade quality.

Distillers grains are often utilized as a high protein supplement in livestock feed. However, distillers grains are suitable for human consumption if you begin the process with human grade grain, and observe food quality standards throughout the process.

If you can obtain any of these, here is the cookie recipe from Gerri:


1 3/4 cup flour
1/2 cup DDG
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup butter (softened)
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 eggs
1 package chocolate chips
1 cup nuts

Heat oven to 375. Stir together flour, baking soda and salt. In large bowl, beat butter, sugar, brown sugar and vanilla until creamy. Add eggs, beat well. Gradually add flour mixture, beating well. Stir in chocolate chips and nuts. Drop by rounded teaspoons onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 8 – 10 minutes. Cool slightly and transfer to cooling rack.
