This is a really great cookie with lots of healthy goodness in it. I used the prunes and actually prefer them over raisins in most oatmeal cookie recipes. I also used flax meal instead of flax seed. The Splenda in this has an aftertaste I don't care for. Those who are use to splenda probably would not notice or mind the taste. I will make these again, but use real sugar instead.
