ginger nut cookies

these taste somewhat like an energy bar, but mostly like a cookie!
packed with tons of protein, flax, and fiber (as well as sugar), so you don't feel as guilty eating them?

  • 1/2 cup milk of choice
  • 1/4 cup oil (or applesauce)
  • 2 cups brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

  • 2 tablespoons rice bran
  • 1/2 cup different nuts or fruit ( i used cashews), chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
