    ladypit's Note:

    These are a slight variation of a lovely cookie from a great diabetic cookbook called "Sweet & Natural: Desserts without sugar, honey, molasses or artificial sweetner" by Janet Warrington. I found this cookbook at a thrift store and have been meaning to try something from it. This is my first try. The original recipe lists carob powder as an optional ingredient. I decided to use it, but had to use cocoa powder as that was what I had. So feel free to leave it off. When you look at these cooled cookies the dates look like chocolate chips and my kids were slightly dissapointed when they realized they were fruit, but the enjoyed these a lot. A nice little fruity cookie which is quite sweet without any added sugar. Also, if you have over-ripe bananas which have not been frozen feel free to use those. I just have a bunch of bananas in my freezer.

      These were okay, we found them to be a bit rubbery and they don't store well. The flavor however is very good.

      these cookies are one of my favorite go to's! The options are really endless. I used dried cranberries instead of dates, but almost any dried chopped fruit would work. To lower the carbohydrate factor, i used a combo of oats and puffed brown rice cereal (easy to find near the natural cerals- even at wal-mart!). everytime i make these, they dissappear!
