These were really good! I used part whole wheat flour too and I substituted dried cranberries for the raisins (I think I might try dried cherries next time). I think this is a very versatile recipe - you could add different nuts, dried fruit, or flavors of chips...I'm thinking peanut butter chips might be good in this too! Thanks!
GREAT! I made these with whole-grain quick oats, whole wheat flour, 1/2 cup Splenda brown sugar blend and 1/2 cup Splenda granular. I subbed pecan chips for the walnuts. I do wonder what they would be like with all applesauce instead of butter but did use the butter. They are nice little drop cookies that stay rounded and don't spread. They seem like kids would love them. My big kid husband couldn't stop eating them.
