Recipe by ladypit
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.
