Ingredients:  
1 cup orange juice
1 cup dried apricots or other dried fruit

cup honey

1 rolled oats
1 cup whole wheat flour or oat flour
cup wheat germ
1 tsp cinnamon

1 cup raisins, partly cut up
⅔ cup toasted almond meal or seeds

Directions:
Directions:
Preheat oven to 350F.
Heat orange juice to a boil. Put dried apricots in pan, bring to a boil again, and turn heat off. Cover pan and let apricots absorb juice until tender enough to cut with a sharp knife, but not really soft.
Meanwhile, mix the honey and oil. Stir oats, flour, wheat germ, cinnamon and salt together.
Drain apricots and add the juice to the honey-oil mixture. Chop apricots coarsly and stir into dry ingredients along with raisins and almond meal. Combine wet and dry ingredients and press mixture into an oiled 9" x 13" baking dish. Bake about 30 minutes. Keep an eye on them! Cookies made with honey brown quickly.
Allow to cool completely before cutting.
