This recipe was inspired by a chocolate chip oat cookie recipe in a little pulses cookbook that was given to me at the Saskatchewan pavilion during the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver. I’ve modified it and gave it a little extra healthy twist. Using pulses in your baking is a good way to add extra goodness by boosting the protein, fiber and vitamin and mineral content, as well as a soft moist texture.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Yield: Approximately five dozen cookies.
**You can add anything you like to these cookies, for example, raisins, dried cranberries, apricots, and dates, chopped nuts, seeds, dark chocolate chunks, shredded carrots and chopped apples, etc. Be creative!
