Very nice. I replaced vanilla by almond extract. 1/3 cup of sugar is enough for us. Don't forget to rehydrate the dried berries ( I used raisins and cranberries) in hot water for 10-15 minutes. Throw away the soaking water, it contains all the preserving agents (not healthy!). Sunflower seeds are great in this recipe.
These are yummy...yummy...that's what the grandson said...I have the book that these came from...and we must have made them at least 6 times while daughter and her son were visiting during the holidays...why DH liked them so much I just finished another batch...I think I will freeze some...to see if that works...thanks for posting the recipe...:)
I made these with cranberries, blueberries, almonds and sunflower seeds and they were a HUGE hit at my office bake sale. Easy gratification, and slightly healthier than other morning baked goods.
I give this 4 out of 5 because I liked them more than my kids did. I had to remind them that they are breakfast cookies and not sweet treats...I added some hemp hearts and mini chocolate chips and while they were baking it dawned on me that there was no spice in the recipe. Next time I will add some cinnamon and nutmeg. I omitted the nuts so the kids could take them to school. My new Kitchenaid mixer made it a whiz to put together. Will make again, thanks!
I made these because I was moving and I had a bunch of nuts and dried fruit that I wanted to use. They are fantastic! I sent some to work with my husband and his colleagues all raved about them. Thanks!
Wow - are these good or what!? Moist with great texture and flavor. It's hard to eat just one. I will definitely make these again!
Fantastic!!!! I hope many more people try these. They are great, not too sweet, perfectly moist, fast to prepare and good flavor! I used all raisins for the dried fruit and 1/2 whole wheat and 1/2 all purpose (ran out of whole wheat) I know I will be making these A LOT more. Thanks so much for a great recipe!
I made these at work and had one, they are great, and a couple months later a customer came in looking for some more, even asked for them by name. The only change I made was we didn't have banana chips so I upped the amount of dried fruit to equal 1 1/2 cups, I used raisins, dried cranberries and chopped dried apricots.
