    I am going to have to try those. They look healthier than most and I am trying to cook with more whole grains.

  2. Lynn says

    I was wanting to make something today but did not know what. When I saw these on your blog this afternoon I knew I wanted to try them. I made them and posted a picture on my blog tonight and linked back to your recipe. We thought they were very good. I just wanted to let you know. Thanks!

    Lynn, thanks for trying it! Like I said on your blog, I do have a leaner, healthier version of the same…less oil, less sugar, and flax seed meal. I’ll have to post it for you.

  4. Lynn says

    I would love to see the leaner version. I was thinking I could probably mess with it a litte but I try to follow directions the first time I make something then I change it later. I don’t think it is fair to say you don’t like a recipe if you didn’t follow directions. So I did it just as you said. I would really like to see the other version. If you don’t post it maybe you could email it to me. Thanks for stopping by my blog.

  5. Lynn says

    Thanks for the healthier version. I will have to give it a try!

    Just wondering if you have the nutrient value of this scrumptious sounding cookie. Calories, fat, protein thank you

    • Jessica Fisher says

      @nanasewn, Not yet, but maybe after I tweak it some more. I think I want to add pepitas and sunflower seeds.
