Best oatmeal cookies I've ever had! I made a few changes though. I used splenda instead of granulated sugar, used only 3/4 cup flour and substitued the other 1 cup with oatmeal. Also I used hershey's sugar free chocolate morsels instead of the fruit and nuts :) They turned out moist, chewy, and very flavorful!

I loved these cookies. I didn't have wheat germ so I replaced with grinded up oatmeal instead. I did use the 3 egg whites unlike some others who used whole eggs instead. I used 1 cup of brown sugar only, no white sugar. I used 3/4 cup white flour, and 1 cup wheat flour. And added no fruits, just dark chocolate chips. Oh yeah, I added a couple tablespoons of ground flax seed. These cookies are so moist and delicious. I will definitely be making again.

yum! These are so good! I used 2 eggs in place of egg whites, skipped the cranberries and apricots and used raisins instead. They turned out wonderful! I cooked them for 8 minutes and they turned out nice and soft. So good!
