Pumpkin Apricot Daybreak Cookie

This recipe came from the now defunct magazine Today's Health and Wellness by way of the Bob's Red Mill website. I had really high hopes for this recipe, and could already picture myself enjoying cookies every day for breakfast. But alas, it was not to be. These cookies are barely edible. Whole wheat flour, oat bran cereal and pumpkin are heavy ingredients and I knew it would take more than 1/8 teaspoon of baking powder to get them to rise. Mine came in at 85 calories each, so for three mornings I chewed and chewed and chewed my way through three cookies until they were gone. I feel the recipe needs more than a little tweaking to get it right. Even the pricy apricots could have been replaced with cheap raisins. Oh well, I'll keep looking for a great tasting and healthy breakfast cookie recipe.
