I needed a tasty, semi-healthy cookie recipe to indulge in while pregnant (so no artificial sugar or chocolate), and after a little tinkering: voila! They are more like biscotti than cookies, meaning it is probably best to cook them a minute or two longer so they'll be crisper and better for dunking in milk! Also, if preferred, you can 1) increase the quantity of nuts to 1 cup, 2) add 1 cup of chocolate chips, or 3) add one cup of raisins
