Monster Cookies (Dianna Eshleman)
This is the only cookie recipe I have used since my children were young (except at Christmas when I go on a variety rampage). The recipe is high protein and no flour. It tastes like a granola bar, only soft and chewy. Now it is also my grandchildren's favorite cookie. Monster Cookies (from the Fairview Mennonite Church Favorites Cookbook published in 1977, Albany, OR.
