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!
