1 1/2 cups
whole bran cereal
finely chopped almonds
1 1/2 cups
dried apricots, chopped
This cookie I modified a little and it is out of this world. I added 1/2 cup of sugar, used pecans instead of almonds (thats what I had), for the cereal I used cheerios, and I used only about a cup of the apricots. These cookies are better as very small drops, half dollar size, otherwise they tend to fall apart
hmm...these tasted...different. i liked the fact that they were healthy, but they certainly didn't taste like cookies...don't get me wrong, they didn't taste bad, they just tasted like muffins...like mini-muffin blobs on my cookie sheet. I wasn't crazy about them, since the banana taste was a bit overwhelming, but my sisters ate these bite-sized muffin/cookies in one night. So, they must have thought they were good. Just depends on what you like, i guess.
This is delicious! Actually, i did not have dried apricots and i ended up using raisins. You can also use apple sause insted of oil. Thank you for this recipe.
good for sugar-free and healthy
I stumbled across this recipe and noticed that all the ingredients were stuff that I wanted to get rid of, so having nothing to lose, I experimented a bit... I halved the recipe and used All-bran Original cereals (let it sit in the wet mixture for 10min to soften). I didn't have enough dried apricots (only 1/4 cup) so I used the rest in apricot jam and omitted the oil to balance the moisture. I also used 3 packs of instant oatmeal (2 of which were peach & cream), sifting away the sugar to keep the oats and peach bits (exactly 3/4 cups). I kept the cookies small as advised, and it yielded 45 mini 1-inch wide cookies. The texture was pretty good, and it tasted very much like granola bars. It was also not too sweet. They stuck on the wax paper and fell apart though, even after spraying it with PAM... Overall, it's a nice, VERY healthy recipe but I can't judge it more than that, since I made so many modifications...
These turned out delicious with a few minor adjustments per the other reviewers: 1 banana instead of 2 (still has definite banana flavor), pecans instead of almonds, added some chopped craisins, and added 1/2 c. honey, 1/2 t baking soda, and reduced the oil by 1/8 cup, due to adding honey. Also due to adding honey, I reduced bake temp to 325 and baked for 20 minutes. They look great, held their shape, and were tasty! Will make again.
I was agreably surprised by those cookies, that do gain in being small and sweeter. I would opt for honey instead of sugar, for the simple and healthy ingredients is what attracted me to them, in the fisrt place; no bleached flour, no milk, no sugar, etc. Really breat little snacks!
Very tasty, but tended to fall apart. I found that I needed to cook at a slightly lower temp. or the apricots burned on top.
