These are good for you and they seem to stick with you. I like to use craisins and dried apples. This came from lowfatcooking.about.com credited to Fiona Haynes

Wowee, these ARE yummy! I did drop the sugar a smidge, down to about 1/3 c for a full batch. I used 1/2 c dried apricots and 1/4 c shredded unsweetened coconut for the dried fruit, and added a hearty shake of cinnamon to the batter. I don't know what inspired it, but believe it or not it all made for a great combination. I made half a batch (silly me) and got 17 cookies when dropping by rounded tablespoons. I am so excited to serve these to DS tomorrow for a special breakfast! He needn't know that mommy sampled LOL. Made for Veg*n Swap 19.
So good and so easy. I used quick cooking irish oatmeal and some wheat germ.
Excellent! I also used regular flour for this and it worked fine. I also omitted the applesauce since I didn't have any, and it didn't seem to affect the taste. These were so easy that my 10 year old son helped me make them and really seems to enjoy eating them, too! Thanks for a great new recipe.
