|Breakfast Cookies - Vegan|

I bumped into a friend yesterday who also loves healthy food and I told her, "I saw the documentary Forks Over Knives, and I'm now eating an all plant diet." To which she replied, "Me too! And I thought of you because I found this FABULOUS recipe for a breakfast cookie that is TO DIE FOR." I got the recipe from her this morning and made them immediately. I added a couple of things like walnuts and golden raisins, which just proves that you can customize this to your taste. The grated orange rind just sends these over the top. These cookies are indeed to die for, but are very healthy. Therefore we won't die young, we will live long and prosper. Enjoy!
