I used the McCormick recipe card that comes with the spices I just used healthier ingredients to make this more figure friendly! Yummy and about half the calories!

Carrot Oatmeal Cookies

Because there is no cane sugar, these cookies lack that super sweet, high-key edge. They're not going to be as sweet as most American baked goods you're used to, but I think they're better. Because there are no eggs in the batter, you don't need to worry about sneaking a taste of dough ;)...And while I love these just as they are, I can imagine playing around a bit by adding some shredded coconut, or different nuts, and/or dried pineapple - or doing a curried version.

BR>After your initial batch experiment with the type of nuts/seeds you use. Lemon zest, clarified butter, and olive oil might be ingredients to play around with as well - but I haven't tested them in this recipe. And I have to say, I love the flavor and richness the coconut oil brings to these cookies. If you have a hard time finding whole wheat pastry flour, feel free to substitute unbleached all-purpose flour.

Nikki's Healthy Cookies

You can use unsweetened carob, or grain sweetened chocolate chips, or do what I did and chop up 2/3 of a bar of Scharffen berger 70%. I sort-of shaved half the bar with a knife and then cut the rest into bigger chip-sized chunks. You can make your own almond meal by pulsing almonds in a food processor until it is the texture of sand - don't go too far or you'll end up with almond butter. And lastly, the coconut oil works beautifully here, just be sure to warm it a bit - enough that it is no longer solid, which makes it easier to incorporate into the bananas. If you have gluten allergies, seek out GF oats.

I got this from a great website that has alot of healthy snake and bake good recipes- I love this site! http://www.101cookbooks.com/archives/nikki
