CWS: these cookies sound good....no sugar except honey, like that! but I never buy Cheerios anymore, too much salt content. I'll find something else to add instead....or: you said you just left them out? and it worked ok?

Best Recipes Ever - Breakfast in a Cookie

Oh--I used sweet potato instead of carrot. Otherwise, it was exactly the same (and I didn't find that freezing the dates made them easier to chop--I had to let them sit for about 10 minutes before I could chop them).
They sound nice

Have a white chocolate raspberry swirl cheesecake in the oven. A co-worker is leaving to go to another store and this is her favorite.

Just mixed up a batch of sweet and salty butter pecan cookie dough (I like to age my cookie dough for a day or two) for a bake sale saturday. I'll also be making a batch of whoopie pies for the sale tomorrow evening.

Soma--they worked fine--I just had to bake them a bit longer (I think it was about 20-25 minutes). One could probably use Agava syrup as well. I used maple syrup because I have so much of it. I didn't dare use just maple syrup, hence why I used 1/2 maple syrup, 1/2 honey. Next time I might do 1/2 honey + 1/2 molasses. If you have fresh oranges, some orange zest and a bit of fresh squeezed orange juice would be nice.

I actually pressed 1/2 the dough in an 8 x 8 pan and made "bars" (I lightly sprayed the pan with cooking oil).

I used a "white" sweet potato, not as sweet as an orange one. I didn't have any carrots in the house, but the sweet potato worked.

These cookies are not sweet/sugary. I have about a 16-hour drive ahead of me this weekend. I wanted some road food to take with me, so made these. And, some curry roasted chickpeas. I have celery and carrot sticks as well. To keep awake, I eat things I have to chew (and listen to books on tape). Now if only I didn't have this beastly cold...
