You can almost convince yourself that these cookies are healthy. I made the batter with my own home-made granola and added raisins, coconut, a bit of wheat germ, and some salty peanuts. There is a bunch of butter, of course, but not much sugar. The cookies are slightly crisp on the outside, nice and soft inside with a lovely crunchiness due to all the nuts. None of the flavors overpowered the others. I took these cookies to the contra dance and they were happily consumed.
