Ingredients:

1/4 cup oil, natural
1/2 cup maple syrup or other liquid sweetener
1/4 cup brown date sugar, barley malt-powder. or other natural powdered or granulated sweetener
3/4 cup flour, whole wheat or kamut, spelt or millet flour
1/2 cup flour, unbleached white or tapioca flour
3/4 to 1 cup pecans, chopped
1/2 cup raisins, currants, or chopped dates
1 tsp anise seeds
1/2 to 1 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp sea salt

Optional:
Dashes of nutmeg, ginger and cloves
1/4 to 1/2 cup coconut, unsweetened and shredded

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 400F. Mix the oil and sweeteners together well. In a separate bowl, mix the remaining ingredients, then slowly stir them into the liquid mixture.

For each cookie, drop 1-2 Tbs of the dough onto lightly oiled cookie sheets, about 2 in. - 3 in. apart. Bake for 9-12 minutes, until lightly browned but still soft. Cool on wire racks. The cookies will get crispy as they cool.

Makes 1- 1 1/2 dozen.
