The original recipe comes from Leanne Ely's "Healthy Foods" and had a different name. We've always called them "the everything cookie" at my house because there are so many things in this cookie! The recipe is forgiving, too. If I don't have pumpkin I use pureed prunes or another banana. You can use any kind of nuts or seeds (or a combination). You can use all whole wheat flour if that is all you have. These have some very good things in them and are a tasty treat. Cook time is approximate because, with as many cookies as this makes, you can't usually cook them in just one batch.

My whole family loves these cookies. I actually make them for breakfast! The only change I made was to substitute shredded coconut for raisins, but that's just what we prefer. YUMMY!!! I like to use my ice cream scoop to plop these onto my parchment lined cookie sheets. I usually get about 16. Then bake both sheets for 9 minutes, rotate them and bake another 9 minutes. They're perfect every time!
It is awful. Threw all the cookies away.
