I got this no-bake cookie off a diabetic recipe website. It contains no artificial sweeteners. The nutrition info is included. You could probably exchange chopped nuts for the wheat germ, if desired, but it might change the dietary exchange. It is not TNT, but I will be including it in my cookie assortment for this year.
FRUIT AND COCONUT BITES
Yield: 5 dozen cookies (1 per serving)
- 2 cups mixed dried fruit or fruit bits
- 1 cup golden raisins
- 1 cup dark raisins
- 3/4 cup flaked coconut
- 1/2 cup wheat germ or crushed reduced-fat granola
- 2 teaspoons finely grated orange, or lemon, rind
- 2-3 tablespoons honey
- 2-3 tablespoons orange juice
- 1/2 cup chopped almonds
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- Crushed granola or toasted coconut
Process dried fruit, raisins, and coconut in food processor
until very finely chopped, using pulse technique, or chop
fruit and raisins very finely by hand. Combine fruit with
remaining ingredients, except granola, mixing until well blended.
Roll fruit mixture into scant 1-inch balls; roll in
granola or coconut. Store in airtight containers.
