I made these with just dried apricot. Michael Wodnicki's sound a lot more interesting! (I should start printing reviews.) But mine are good! I might try cardamom instead of cinnamon next time. Reviewed for Healthy Choices ABC tag.
Fantastic cookies! Thanks for sharing. They're a great little sweet fix without the guilt of the sugary alternatives. They have a very nice mouth feel, much like an oatmeal cookie. I used equal parts of dried cranberries & blueberries, raisins, and unsweetened coconut. I also used only the egg white to cut back on calories. A small cookie scoop's worth slightly flattened makes them smaller, allowing you to eat two instead of just one. It's a mental thing! Our kids (all under 8) love them. I'm going to try a little ground nutmeg and ginger next time to give them a little bite. I wonder how crushed fresh pineapple would stand up to baking!?
