Project Pinterest - No Sugar Cookies

Two weeks ago I came across a recipe titled "No Sugar Oat Drops" and thought that sounded disgusting. 

A cookie without sugar?
No thank you.

But since I'm trying my best to make healthier food choices I decided to at least give the recipe a read.
And it didn't sound too bad!
Coconuts, almonds and raisins won me over.

Now, keep in mind that these are out-of-the-box cookies.
{Not from-a-box...out-of-the-box.}
They are VERY thick and do not spread, so however big you form them is how big they will be.

Here are mine, uncooked on the baking sheet.
{I used a medium biscuit cutter to shape them.}

And here are my {super badly photographed} baked cookies.
Do not let the poor lighting fool you...
these bad boys were D. Licious!
I deviated slightly from the original recipe and used what I had on hand.
And bare in mind that 175C approximates to 350F.
Also, the recipe says to bake for 20 minutes, but mine could have baked much longer...upwards of 35 to 40 as it bakes more like a quick bread than a cookie.
