Very easy to make. Lightly sweet, these cookies are high in protein and fiber, and tasty without any refined sugar, so you get a boost of energy to get you through the morning. My teenagers grab these for breakfast when they are rushing out the door. Makes a filling snack as well. You can substitute your favorite dried fruit and nuts in place of the raisins and walnuts. I have also added 1/2 cup chocolate chips on occasion.
