Healthy Banana Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2011
full points for health factor. use p.butter instead of oil and you have basically a no sugar (xcept for what is in the fruits and p.butter),no flour, eggfree, butter free and preservative free cookie. i used a lot of nuts- sesame, almond and pnuts for crunch. added coconut essence, chopped apples and prunes, dried cranberries and few raisins. don't forget your cinnamon powder! just pack with your favorite fruit combo. i did reduce the bananas to two so it wasn't as chewy as my first try- i liked it better this time. to add even more crunch add the slivered almonds on top the cookie after you have shaped it, push it in just a bit so they wouldn't fall out. i did find i needed it to cook a little more because they were bigger and i wanted the bananas to carmalize. looking forward to trying new combos!!!!! the kids will love them.

Wheat Crackers

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2011
good recipe. needed to be seasoned with more salt and fav. herbs. i used chili powder, some italian seasoning and 1 1/2 tsp sugar for balance. bumped up the texture and health level by adding finely chopped spinached leaves, olive oil and replacing some of the all purpose for oatmeal. next time will try garlic powder, parm. cheese and spinach (might even grate some carrots in there). this needs to be really thin to crisp and avoid kneeding as much as possible so that the gluten isn't too developed. if still not crisp, break up and place only those that need 'crisping' in the toaster oven on low until desired. great base recipe!!
