These cookies are healthy and very delicious. Everytime I make them everybody always asks me for the recipe.They definitely satisfy a sweet tooth. Just writing about them makes me want to make them.I found the recipe from a Dole cookbook. The original recipe had raisins and I omitted them because we do not like raisins.

These were really good, perfect for that Summer going into Fall time of year. I also added about a cup of shredded coconut but had to bake about 22 mins because they didn't spread and I like my cookies lightly browned. I also used parchment paper so there was no added oil on the baking sheet and the bottoms were perfect. After the first batch I flattened the dough with a fork and they were more to my liking, a little thinner and crisper. Next time I think I'll spice them up a bit with nutmeg, more cinnamon, and a little ginger. But as is, they were still yummy!
