I stumbled across this recipe and noticed that all the ingredients were stuff that I wanted to get rid of, so having nothing to lose, I experimented a bit... I halved the recipe and used All-bran Original cereals (let it sit in the wet mixture for 10min to soften). I didn't have enough dried apricots (only 1/4 cup) so I used the rest in apricot jam and omitted the oil to balance the moisture. I also used 3 packs of instant oatmeal (2 of which were peach & cream), sifting away the sugar to keep the oats and peach bits (exactly 3/4 cups). I kept the cookies small as advised, and it yielded 45 mini 1-inch wide cookies. The texture was pretty good, and it tasted very much like granola bars. It was also not too sweet. They stuck on the wax paper and fell apart though, even after spraying it with PAM... Overall, it's a nice, VERY healthy recipe but I can't judge it more than that, since I made so many modifications...
