      These cookies are soooooo good!! And I love that they are good for you too!! I did modify just a little.... I used organic sucanat instead of the brown sugar, I didn't have wheat germ so I used some coconut flour in place of that....and Walmart was OUT of sunflower seeds, so I bought pumpkin instead. Also, I used agave nectar instead of the honey, just because I had some and wanted to use it up. I took them to the gym with me and both the ladies that tried them insisted on having the recipe. Thanks for a great cookie recipe. I will make these again and again!!

      These were a big hit with the family. We took them on our hiking trip and they were great. I made a few modifications to reduce calories: in place of the butter I used 1/4 cup light butter and 3/4 cup applesauce, substituted one egg for 3 tbsp egg white, added ginger and cinnamon, and used raw sugar instead of brown sugar. I also baked to make bars instead of cookies. I will be making again.

      I personally found them to be a bit bitter, perhaps from the apricots but my grandson devoured them and the ladies where my husband works asked for the recipe! I'm going to try a few alterations...maybe even some peanut butter and coconut and a bit more honey.
