This is a tasty, solid pb cookie recipe, and of course you've gotta love the whole grains. I went one step further by using half whole wheat flour and half rolled oats, mostly to give the cookies texture as I was out of crunchy peanut butter. Like the other reviewer I cut back on the sugar with little consequence. I was also out of wheat germ, but I look forward to trying these again with it. Thanks for posting!
