“Comes from "Laurel's Kitchen" cookbook. I've been told I should market these. It's very versatile...I add dried cranberries and different kinds of nuts as well as substituting flax seed, (which is an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids) for some of the wheat germ. I feel pretty good about giving these to my kids and loved ones and I hope if you make them that you'll enjoy the same feedback as I do. mmm mmm”
3 dozen cookies
