1/4 t. EACH baking soda & baking powder
1/2 t. cinnamon

1/2 t. vanilla
1/4 c. honey
(I usually have to add a little bit of water 'cause they're a bit dry)
Combine all but vanilla & honey. Mix & then add vanilla & honey & water
if needed, mix well again. Press into a greased 8 x 8 pan. Bake at 325
for 18 -20 minutes or until golden brown. Cool before cutting.
They baked up pretty easy, and my husband cut them up for me to cool on the rack. As they are here, they are @150calories--but i cut them in half again later so i could put them in the cookie jar. And because i find them to be SUPER sweet. My husband loves them--but he likes sweet stuff. I like sweets too--but only in that opiate combination of fat & sweet. I haven't given any to Benji yet, but I don't see myself snacking on them much. I may try another recipe i found that had a little more substance and a little less sweet.
