Guilt-Free Cookies Recipe at
In a small nonreactive saucepan, combine the apricots, raisins, dates, and orange juice concentrate. Simmer over low heat for 10 minutes. Cool.

Combine the oats, flour, salt, and baking soda in a large bowl. Add the egg and oil and mix until well blended. Stir in the cooled fruit and the seeds.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Drop the batter by spoonfuls onto a parchment-lined baking sheet. Using a spatula, flatten to 1/4-inch thickness. Bake in the oven for 12 to 15 minutes. Cool on a rack and store in an airtight container.
