This is a simple but really delicious recipe I've developed over time. In spite of being whole grain, they are pretty light. Applesauce replaces the fat, and it isn't missed at all. They're sweet without being too sweet, and disappear right after I make them. My toddlers, hubby, and I all love them. Of course there's plenty of room for variation with this recipe--any type of dried fruit can be put in, you can play with spices, or add some packed pumpkin puree. Lots of options. ADDED NOTE: I figured out why these haven't risen for me the last couple times--I neglected to transfer the baking soda when I entered this recipe. That's fixed now and these should be as delicious as ever now!
