Apple, Date, Cinnamon Cookies

My son and I made these this afternoon to send to my children who will not be able to be with us for Christmas.

They are very moist and delicate cookies will a low sugar content.

This recipe makes about a dozen cookies.

Mix together in a large bowl:
1 Granny Smith apple, cored and chopped
1/2 cup dates, soaked, pitted, and chopped

Beat together in separate bowl:
1 Tablespoon oil or melted butter (I used sesame oil)
2 Tablespoons honey or agave
1 egg

Stir together in a small bowl:
2 Tablespoons garbanzo flour
1/4 cup whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ginger
1/2 teaspoon kelp or dulse
1/4 teaspoon green stevia powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda

Mix wet ingredients into apple, date mixture. Stir in dry ingredients thoroughly.

Drop by Tablespoon fulls on well greased cookie sheet (or use parchment paper as they do stick on the edges).

Bake in 350 degree Fahrenheit oven for 20 - 22 minutes, until edges start to brown.

Let cool completely before trying to remove from baking sheet.
