  2. Whisk together the wet ingredients.
  3. Add the liquid mixture to the dry ingredients and blend until well combined.
  4. Drop tablespoon-sized portions of the cookie dough onto a cookie sheet and flatten them. You can place them close together as they do not spread much.

Fun Note:

Years ago, when I was teaching yoga at Macrobiotic Summer Camp, a batch of these cookies was auctioned. They were sold for $44, a testament to their popularity and deliciousness.
