I made this recipe without the flax/wheat germ, with 100% whole wheat flour. and the additional T of oil suggested by a different reviewer. The result wasn't a batter-more like a crumble--probably drier than that! I figured at that point that I didn't have anything to lose-so I added water until it resembled a batter, made cookies and baked them a while. The result was descent--but it's not something I would serve company. However, they were polished off by lunch (we're a family of six).
These can easily become addicting. After the first one, I had to eat 2 more!! The downside is that they were too dry and hard to roll into a ball to drop on cookie sheet. I guess it needs a little more fluid, as jennythecook said in her review. I used the bottom of a glass to flatten them out. Made for PAC Spring 2011.

I remember my mom let me bake cookies by myself for the first time when I was five. I was hooked from that time. I love to bake and cook. Trying new recipes is especially fun for me. I usually try at least two-three per week. Of course, I have a lot of favorites that we have over and over again too. One thing that I've really gotten into recently is trying to lighten up some of my favorite recipes. Homemade pizza is one of my specialties. My husband thinks my pancakes are the best.
