The purpose of this cookie recipe is to create something that avoids all the health pitfalls of the traditional cookie (hard to digest wheat flours, processed sugar, non-organic butters, and aluminum filled baking powders), yet is still something you can expect the children to chow down on like cookie monster.

This recipe accomplishes both in spades.
