I am always looking out for whole food and a lasting snack to pack for my 3 school goers…
This is a recipe that goes well with more than prunes and raisins. You can easily replace Apricot or Figs with the same recipe.
Crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside…that’s what my kids tell me when they grab the cookie whenever they are off the tray! It brings a smile to me.
Happy baking and Happy packing these for your loved ones.
