I found the recipe that I based this one on in a book called monster cookies. I made a few changes to it and it has become mine. Everytime I make these they rarely last the day. They are actually quite healthy and filling and I will have one with my morning coffee for breakfast... kinda like a granola bar in cookie form. If you use a dark (non-stick) cooie sheet they will come out less chewy.

These are great! I couldn't stop myself from eating the dough, as its so full of great little bits. They have been one of my favorite go-to recipes for about 7 years now. I add a slight bit of moisture to the dough, usually with a tablespoon or two of milk, sometimes molasses, or apple sauce. The extra moisture really makes a difference and the cookies come out chewy and amazing. These are a must-bake!
My family rated this cookie a 4. It's very tasty, and we enjoyed them (the ones I didn't freeze for Christmas!). I used the medium Pampered Chef scoop to make them & got 47 cookies out of this recipe. I really liked all the healthy ingredients in them. Thanks for posting.
