1 cup whole-wheat flour
1/4 cup soy flour
1 1/3 cup rolled oats
3/4 cup unsweetened flaked coconut
1/4 cup milk powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. ground ginger
2/3 cups raisins
2/3 cup chocolate chips
1/4 cup peanuts, chopped
1/3 cup sunflower seeds
1/4 cup oil or melted butter
1/4 cup molasses
1/4 cup honey
2 eggs, beaten

Preheat oven to 350oF.
Mix the dry ingredients—everything except the oil, molasses, honey and eggs—in a large bowl.
In a smaller bowl or measuring cup combine the beaten eggs with the oil (or melted butter) molasses and honey.
Pour the liquid ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix until moistened. If necessary, add more water or milk to get the best consistency for dropping the dough onto the baking sheet.
Drop cookie dough by spoonfuls onto an un-oiled baking sheet.
Bake for 10-12 minutes.
