Delicious Healthy Cookies!

My mom gave me this recipe and as soon as I tried them I knew I had to share them!
The great thing about these cookies is that there is no butter! And, instead of white all purpose flour, there's whole wheat flour. So you don't have to feel so guilty after you eat a plate of them to yourself!

Another awesome thing about these cookies is that they are different every time you make them. You can alter the recipe a bit to suit your tastes.

Here it goes...

T's Healthy Cookies!

1 Cup - Brown Sugar
1/2 Cup - White Sugar
3 - Eggs
3/4 Cup - Olive Oil

1 Cup - Whole Wheat Flour
1 Tsp - Baking Soda
1 Tsp - Baking Powder

3/4 Cup - Coconut
1 Cup - Wheat Germ
3/4 Cup - Granola
3/4 Cup - Oatmeal
1 Cup - Dried Fruit (Craisins, Raisins, Dates, etc...)
1 Cup - Chocolate Chips (I usually put in 3/4 cup, and add a few more nuts instead)
1 1/2 Cup - Nuts/Seeds (Sesame seeds, Pumpkin seeds, Pecans, Slivered Almonds, Sunflower seeds, etc..)

Bake at 350 for 10-12 min
Makes approx. 30-40 depending on size.
Make sure you spray the pan before hand! These guys really stick!

1) Start by mixing the wet stuff: (Sugars, Eggs, and Olive Oil)

2) In a seperate bowl, mix flour, baking soda, and baking powder. Stir.

3) Add all of the other ingredients to the flour mixture.

I used sesame seeds, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, and chopped pecans (I usually add slivered almonds, but didn't have any)  For dried fruit I used dates and craisins (usually add raisins, but also didn't have any.)

4) Add all of the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients. Stir.

5) Next put  them on a tray, and stick them in the oven! Almost done!

10-12 minutes later, they are all done!

They may be a little bit crumbly at first, don't worry. Just let them cool off on a cooling rack for 10 minutes or so and they will hold together. Now comes for the most important step...

6) ENJOY!!!
