The recipe as written is slightly healthier than the linked original. However, the only changes were to replace half the flour with whole wheat, and to cut the sugar content a bit.
I took it a couple of steps further and replaced half the butter with applesauce, subbed splenda* for the white sugar, and used exclusively white whole wheat flour. I thought about using egg beaters instead of eggs, but the difference would be negligible. Oh, and I did not add the dates, as I didn't have those or a reasonable substitute on hand.
They came out quite well. Chewy and oatmealy and just sweet enough.
*Yes, I realize Splenda is controversial as being healthy. I've tried Stevia and find it to have a weird, bitter aftertaste, and use Splenda sometimes as a baking friendly way to lower calorie count.
I really want to add some raspberries to these.
