If you are looking for a fruity treat that’s also high in fiber, look no further. The following recipe, courtesy Bob’s Red Mill Natural Foods, uses a mixture of whole grains and dried fruit to create a moist cookie similar to oatmeal raisin cookies.

Although this recipe calls for dried blueberries, apples and roasted hazelnuts, you can trade out these fruits for dried versions of your favorites. If you’re looking to cut sugar from your diet, this recipe also performs well with up to half the sugar. Check back next week for another great recipe from Bob’s Red Mill.

• 1 cup butter, softened
• 3/4 cup white sugar
• 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
