How'd it Taste?

Sound wonderful!
I wouldn't call this a cookie. This to me seemed more like a baked bar that I would take on a long hike. I think it needed more spice as well. It was super easy to throw together though and my gluten free friends will appreciate it!

240 calories per cookie? That’s not what I consider part of a healthy diet!
Sweets and treats are at the top of our Heritage Diet Pyramids, meant to be enjoyed rarely on special occasions! These cookies, while certainly a treat, also have ingredients that bring some nutrition to the table, such as almond meal.
