A hearty cookie

Top Review by SnickerFog

This is an excellent recipe for a breakfast cookie! The texture was just perfect. Not sweet, fluffy and very "healthy tasting." I see how some might call them bland. I followed the suggestions about flavor and added 1 t. cinnamon, 1/2 t. nutmeg, 1 t. vanilla extract. They were very nutmeg-y, lol, but I used black currants for the "dried fruit" and it the two flavors complemented each other wonderfully. Also, I simply used a greased cookie sheet (no parchment paper) and dropped the cookies into meatball-sized lumps. I was able to remove them immediately and they didn't spread much. The recipe made about 16 this way. I cooked them for about 15 minutes.
