Here is a yummy but healthy cookie recipe that will warm up a cold winter's afternoon without loading you up with sugar! These cookies are gluten-free if you use GF products, and vegan if you substitute the egg as suggested. If nuts and raisins aren't your thing, you can always substitute them for coconut flakes, chocolate chips, goji berries, dried cranberries (no sugar added), or cacao nibs!
