*Healthy* Breakfast Cookies

I finally had time to bake Keith's favorite cookies for his Birthday.
Only 1 month late!!
They aren't a very photogenic cookie but they have a great reputation.
While I was the baker at Keith's coffee shop I made this recipe at least 4 times a week.
It is one of very few recipes that I've found and did not alter the ingredients. Most likely because the recipe came from King Arthur.
*Healthy disclaimer: healthy ingredients does not equal diet cookie.
And please ignore the smudged bee, I found a new rubber stamp & was too impatient to let it dry.
I don't think Keith will mind!
