Prep time: 20 min; Total time: 45 min. Makes 20 cookies Per cookie: 77.5 calories, 0.5g fat, 2g fiber, 1.9g protein, 12.3% RDA iron, 4.5% RDA calcium.
*Tips for Baking
Tip #1 Baking Parchment Paper - use this to line your baking sheets (use fresh paper each time) This seems like a luxury, but your cookies will come off easier with a spatula and cleanup is a breeze. Tip #2 Use a cooling rack.
Tip #3 Cookie dough is very moist. Don't panic , the cookie dough is very moist. Don't add more cereal (big mistake I did that once). Just put them on the lined cookie sheets. * Additional information for that perfect cookie Add more spices! Try allspice, cloves, ground ginger or cardamom. The first time you try them, start with only 1/4 tsp, then taste the cookie dough and add more if desired.
I like to use the small raisins (currents), or the regular sized organic raisins. You can also use other ingredients, nuts, chocolate chips, carob chips, and other dried fruit. Jay, from Lassens Health Foods suggested using chopped up persimmons.
