    Sharon123's Note:

    I know this sounds strange, and I haven't tried it yet, but the reviews are so good, I must try it and posting here for safekeeping. Bal Arneson from Spice Goddess on the Cooking Channel is the creator. You can make these vegan by substituting Earth balance butter for the butter, one tablespoon flaxseed meal mixed with 3 T water(see Flax Eggs) for the egg and vegan chocolate chips.

      I have made these many times. I am never one to follow recipes, but this I can get away with substituting a different nut or dried fruit for what the recipe calls for and they still, turn out great. I have even added some coco powder for some depth. I think next time I will try to omit the flour by using almond meal. I think chocolate chips are great in this.

      YUM! This was my first time making cookies from scratch, and I couldn't be happier with the results. Although not a healthy recipe, the lentils and oatmeal at least add some nutritional value- which is always nice. The pumpkin seeds in particular taste superb inside the cookie, and although I liked the addition of chocolate chips, I was tempted to sub in dried cranberries instead... Next time I just might do that. These are also very filling, and a few cookies with a cup of tea or coffee would make a great breakfast. Thanks for sharing this!
