These were good and easy. I used dried cherries because that is what I had. They baked for 8 minutes in my oven.

Great cookie! We did some substitutions, though: we used all purpose flour, and used craisins in place of the raisins. Absolutely fabulous! We will make this again - especially for the ones that don't like chocolate (GASP!). We doubled it and it made 27 3-inch cookies. Very fluffy, too (which is perfect for this type of cookie, where I usually don't like cake-like cookies).

5 stars for adaptability and chewy goodness! I actually started off making applesauce low fat brownies and then realized I was out of cocoa midway through! Luckily, I found your recipe which was quite similar. Since I already had 3/4 cup applesauce in my mixture I just kept adding oats until it started sticking, then, because they still weren't sticking very well and I didn't want to keep adding more oats, I stirred in about 1/4 cup natural peanut butter. They turned out fantastic! 10 min. was perfect in my oven and I had 26 large cookies. Also, don't be fooled by the higher fat/calorie content listed. That's for four servings, meaning you'd be eating six cookies (though, let's be honest, that does seem quite accurate, now doesn't it?) ;)
