Nuts to Cookies

Oh, my!  Don’t they look innocent?  They are supposed to be cookies, but they are, in reality, delicious little islands of nuts, dates, and cranberries surrounded by a minimum of oatmeal cookie dough, and quickly baked to perfection.  Three dozen of these beauties landed on the counter and in the freezer after a short baking session.

The recipe was purloined from one of my favorite cooking/baking blogs.  I made a few substitutions, i.e. coconut sugar for the brown sugar, and five-grain rolled cereal for the oatmeal.  I couldn’t find my cardamom, so I used allspice and garam masala.

If you want to fall in love with an easy-to-stir-together cookie, AND have the self control not to eat all of them immediately, give these guys a try.  I had hoped there would be some to take on a picnic soon, but it seems that putting them in the freezer did not deter us from gobbling them at a rapid rate!

  1. Glad you enjoyed these tasty cookies. Love your version with the dates and coconut sugar. I haven’t used allspice in a while, so thanks for the reminder of that! 🙂

    They aren’t so bad – healthwise. I used a lot of nuts and dried fruits with just a bit of actual batter around them. They are smallish, and one seems to be enough to satisfy the craving.


  5. So healthy & yummy!!! I just finished eating dried cranberries…so good!
