Recipe by A Messy Cook
I have not tried these cookies (yet) but they look like delicious little bites of fruity, fiber-rich flavor! I think I will probably reduce the sugar when I make them. Sucanat would be a good stand-in for the brown sugar. Recipe is from Light and Tasty’s April/May 2005 issue. Things like this always get lost in the pile of cooking magazines, so I am posting it for safekeeping!

- 1⁄2 cup granulated sugar
