“These cookies are wonderful, and good for you too! I prefer to use real butter but margarine can be substituted. Wheat germ can also be substituted for the wheat bran. My two year old loves these and I feel less guilty letting him eat them.”

These were so good! I did make a few changes, though: I omitted the milk powder, added a cup of oatmeal and 1/4 cup of brown sugar, and used 1/4 cup margarine and 1/4 cup applesauce. I used wheat germ instead of wheat bran. And I used egg replacer instead of an egg. They are excellent, quite soft, and just the right amount of sweet. Actually, the next time I make them I think I'll leave out the brown sugar because I think they would be sweet enough without it. I would love to try them with some dried cherries and golden raisins, too!



My son loves these. I let him eat these for breakfast. My dad loves these. (He's diabetic). My friend who loves peanut butter loves these and asked for the recipe right away! I did add 1/2 c. oatmeal for the consistency and 1 banana for the yum factor. You cannot tell they're sugar free. You can't even really tell they're health-nut cookies b/c of the strong peanut butter taste/smell.



I can't eat just one! I subbed unsweetened applesauce for half of the butter, used chunky PB, and threw in a couple dashes of ground ginger. Outstanding!
