This recipe was first made when we were about to go on an adventure and wanted something to keep our energy up. It worked quite well. When I make this recipe I only make half, which is the perfect amount for 2 people, and the perfect amount for cooking in my toaster oven, since I don't have a regular oven! Apparantly this is Marilee's favourite cookie recipe - thanks Marilee!
