You know what those days are like. It's cloudy and cold and you need a little pick-me-up.

I decided it was the perfect time to make some cookies.

As I often do, when I need a recipe that doesn't call for gotta-run-to-the-store-to-get-the-ingredients, I reached for the More with Less Cookbook. It's a true gem, and I highly recommend it to anyone who wishes to serve hearty and healthy dishes to their family.

As I often do, I tweaked the recipe to give the cookies a little extra healthy crunch. Here's my recipe for what I renamed ...

Cold Morning Crisps

1/2 c. melted butter
1T. corn syrup
2/3 c. sugar
1 c. whole wheat flour
1/8 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda dissolved in
2 T. water
Mix well. Stir in:
2/3 c. coconut
2/3 c. chopped nuts
And I added ~
1/4 c. flax seed
1/2 c. rolled oats
1 tsp. maple flavouring
Form walnut size balls 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet, and flatten with fork. Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 10 to 12 minutes.

Let me know if you try these. They were so yummy, the whole batch disappeared rather quickly.
