My mother-in-law brought over these crunchy, cinnamon-packed treats one night, and I couldn't keep my hands off them. Thank goodness they're healthier than the average cookie! She found this recipe on www.eatbetteramerica.com where the website states, "These sassy little cookies with pecans and cinnamon-flavored chips pack a dynamite punch!" Boy, did they hit the nail on the head with this one!
