Bravo to a healthier alternative cookie, and I'm pleased with how nicely these turned out. Since it's easy to vary what ingredients you've got on hand (or just personal preferences), here's how I tweaked them: 3/4 c brown sugar and a healthy squeeze of two of honey. I added a few tablespoons of peanut butter just because I like it (and wanted a little extra protein since I intend to eat these as a "grab and go" breakfast cookie). I used a whole egg and subbed 1 tsp baking powder instead, desiring a puffier, cake-like cookie. Not measuring, I tossed in some pomegranate craisins, grape nuts, and chocolate chunks (would've used the mini morsels, but I was out). I didn't have pecans, which I'll add toasted next time, nor did I have sunflower seeds, which I adore in anything trail mix-y. Overall, these were a cinch to throw together, baked up exactly how I imagined, and I can't wait to experiment further with these!
