Final notes:

  • The recipe is inspired by Whole Foods Power Cookie. Credit to my son Andrew, for steering me towards this wonderful treat. Congrats to Andrew for completing the Gran Fondo. That’s 170 km of biking around Bear Mountain, NY. Super power indeed!
  • When you hear the word “cookie,” you probably think of a powerful rush of sugar. But just as this Super Power Cookie gives you that slow steady energy you need, Susan Schwartz of The Montreal Gazette explains the benefits to slow in a quick fix world.
