This were incredibly simple to make. The original recipe had to be cut in half, if you can believe it! It still made more than most recipes. I was not personally wowed by these, they reminded me of a trail cookie, something with lots of lumps and bumps filled with seeds and whatnot to give you energy while hiking. They were also more on the dry side. However, these were a favorite of several friends that we went away for the weekend with.

Tonight was another leftover dinner night, Son #1 had an eye appointment and they were running late. I don’t think I’ve ever been to a doctor’s appointment that actually was on time. Thankfully they decided not to dilate his eyes, which would have added an additional 20 minutes to the wait. Between that and an abundance of leftovers in the fridge (and same son needing a quick haircut), I decided it would be easier. For my blog I knew there were still 3 cookie recipes from our weekend that I haven’t shared yet, and they must be shared. The next 2 coming up were huge hits.
