fig and almond cookies (this ones for you owm!)
these were divine! i changed the original recipe up a bit, which i got from cookinglight.com and made tastier and healthier too.
i use quinoa flour for part but feel free to just use whole wheat for that...same for the oat bran but please keep the almond meal..cause yum, its way better with it. littlefoodie scarfed down a couple for breakfast with some apples satueed in butter and blackstrap mollases so they were a huge hit there.
easy to travel with and a healthy hearty snack too!
