Wowee, these ARE yummy! I did drop the sugar a smidge, down to about 1/3 c for a full batch. I used 1/2 c dried apricots and 1/4 c shredded unsweetened coconut for the dried fruit, and added a hearty shake of cinnamon to the batter. I don't know what inspired it, but believe it or not it all made for a great combination. I made half a batch (silly me) and got 17 cookies when dropping by rounded tablespoons. I am so excited to serve these to DS tomorrow for a special breakfast! He needn't know that mommy sampled LOL. Made for Veg*n Swap 19.
I love these 'cookies' and can't wait to have them for breakfast - what a treat. I did not have whole wheat so used all purpose flour. I used 1/2 cup dried cranberries, added a few fresh raspberries and 1/3 cup of semi sweet chocolate chips. YUM! Lots of flavour and great texture! Made for Sweet Traditions Tag.
