Add the Wet mixture to the dry, and stiruntil dough sticks together.Mix in the oats, coconut and fruit.
Bake for 10-15 minutes. I like to rotatemy cookies after 5 minutes.
---The Lentil Puree---
Take the 2/3 cup of rinsed lentils and2 cups of water, bring to a boil and letsimmer for 40 min. Puree in foodprocessor or blender if it has thecapability. I suggest doing this beforeyou begin baking as to minimize bakingtime.
