Originally found here, I slightly modified the recipe based on a friend's review of this recipe- I added an extra tbsp of vanilla, and 1/4c. less flour. I used whole wheat flour, because I don't know what white whole wheat flour is. My second son enjoyed them- "not really like a cookie, mom," he said, "more like an oatmeal muffin". We ate 2 this morning, so the full recipe made 24 cookies. I did measure them, but there's no way I could have gotten 30 as the original recipe states.
Getting these cookies done was not the easiest task today. I started them, remembered it was swimming registration day, and (because online registration doesn't work for me anymore) tried unwisely to make a run for the door since registration fills up ridiculously fast. I then tripped because my feet caught in a turkey lifter which I had left next to the stairs to remind me to give it to someone- whereupon I fell down the stairs. Mike had to rescue me, as I was clinging to the hand railing, my feet caught up in that turkey lifter, and I couldn't move without falling more.
Luckily though, the kids got registered (and they'd better be thankful!), I registered myself in yoga, the cookies got done, and I'm going to have another cup of coffee before I even attempt anything else requiring dexterity, such as housework. Apparently my fine motor skills are taking a break.
Have an excellent day!.
