it's a aittle bit more healthy. whitney: yes, it's more like a granola bar than a cookie. they're very easy and can be stored in the fridge or the freezer. that way they get a little bit harder of a texture. otherwise they get a little soft if you store at room temperature. but, i'm going to show you how easy they are to make. in my bowl of ingredients i have a couple of cups of oatmeal, some dried cranberries and some pumpkin seeds. you can use any dried fruit you want. you can also use sunflower seeds. if you don't like pumpkin seeds or if you have a hard time finding them. to that i'm going to add some ground flax seeds. sheila: do you want to start stiring. w wtney: yeye in this bowl i'm going to take care of the wet ingredients. i'm going to start with the pumpkin. it's full of potassium, fiber. it's really full of vitamins and minerals. sheila: so, canned pumpkin? you need to stay away from the sweetened. is that the key?
