I see there is another recipe similar to this on here, but it is a bit more complicated than mine, calls for more ingredients and is a bit harder to make. So I thought I'd post my own version too, since I happen to be quite fond of it! Found this in my mom's "Feed Me I'm Yours" cookbook, 1978. Great cookie for kids - chalk full of whole grain, fruit and protein!

These were really good and my husband even liked them. I skipped out on the raisins, used regular splenda in place of the brown sugar. I even used oat bran in place of wheat germ. I think it made them turn out a little "heartier" than normal but they were still really good and sugar free!
