¼ tsp. salt
3 Tbs. canola oil
5 Tbs. prune-oatmeal baby food

Heat chocolate & oil in a glass measuring cup in microwave for 30 seconds; stir & microwave for 30 more seconds if necessary. Stir in baby food & vanilla, then stir into flour mixture. If dough is too crumbly to hold together, add 1 Tbs. more baby food.
Roll dough into 1 ½ inch balls (or use 1oz scoop); press with palm (or drinking glass) to flatten. Bake 12 minutes or until small cracks form on top of cookies. Cool about 5 minutes on baking sheet then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
