Yummmmy! I made cookie bars instead of cookies. Very moist! I cut the butter in half and used about 3/4 c applesauce. I added raisins and omitted the sunflower seeds (only cause I didn't have any in the house). I used flax seed meal instead of the seeds and used about 3 T. My husband, who is use to me baking all sorts of goodies on the weekends, lovessss these (he recently changed his diet due to high cholesterol, so I have been looking for a tasty baked good that is lower in fat). Definitly a keeper...thank you!

This is a wonderful recipe! I did not have any wheat germ so I substituted more oatmeal and they turned out just fine. It is nice to find a healthy recipe that still tates great. I will definitely be making these cookies often!

With all the sugar, butter and white processed flour, I wouldn't really consider this a healthy cookie. I gave them a try with some changes...applesauce for 1/2 the butter, cutting back on the sugar by half and using spelt flour (whole wheat flour would be a good alternative, too). I'm not sure how different they tasted from the original but they were much healthier and they tasted really good. I only gave it 3 stars because I had to make changes to really make them a healthy snack.
