    Jenny Sanders's Note:

    Any of the "twiggy" or bud-like cereals (which are in fact mostly bran) will work in these cookies. You could also replace the figs with raisins or chocolate chips. These may be good for you but they are also just plain good.

      Jenny posted this recipe on the boards in response to a request I made for nutritious and high fibre snacks for my terminally ill MIL. I didn't have figs on hand, so I asked if I could substitute dates, raisins or prunes and received an affirmative answer. Not to get carried away, but I decided to use all three and the results were wonderful. I took about half of them to MIL and kept half of them for us. They were so easy to make and every pan turned out beautifully! Thank you for posting this recipe at my request Jenny!!! Btw, MIL thanks you too! :-)

      I picked these as part of Pick a Chef and I am sooo glad that I did. I love the taste of the figs and bran mixed. Great cookie - who cares if they're good for you. ;)
