This recipe makes great cookies and even better bars. In its original form, following the recipe, it has a nice mild balance of oatmeal and apple flavours. Three cookies is one full serving of whole grains, and a full serving of fruit. It keeps at least a week without getting dried out (and then my four year old inhaled the last bar). I'm planning to try it again with cut up dried apricots and toasted sesame seeds. Try it out! (Found it in the Toronto daily "24 Hours" paper, October 3, 2005)
