Chocolate Mesquite Cookies

I found this recipe on the internet while doing a search for "mesquite powder," which I bought to make Crock Pot Pulled Pork (Crock Pot Pulled Pork Tacos and then Some, which I recommend). Intrigued by the unusual ingredients, I have not been able to identify the original source, but have subsequently modified the recipe anyway. As cookies go, these are nutritious - the honey and mesquite have a wonderful caramel rich synergy and the cookies form an attractive crackle pattern like gingersnaps. Be careful not to overbake - watch carefully and go on the light side of done when you take them out. I used "raw organic mesquite powder" by Health Matters, found at my local health food store.
