This is such an easy recipe to change up, modify to however you like it best, whether that means making it tastier or healthier (or both?!?)!!!! I usually use coconut palm sugar in place of the brown sugar. In place of the wheat germ, I substitute flax meal and chia seed. For flour, I use 3/4 c whole wheat and 1/4 teff flour. Instead of raisins, I might add dates, and/or dried blueberries. Instead of 1/2 c vegetable oil, I put in 1 banana and 1/4 c peanut butter. If the batter seems too dry, I'll then add a bit of vegetable oil. The rest of the recipe stays the same. I find so long as the wet and dry ingredients balance out, it works. I convection bake at 325% for 20 minutes or so. My young grandsons both like these; they call them "cookies," and I feel good about offering these healthy treats to them, so that makes this recipe a winner to me!!! I know that's a lot of changes, but I always begin with this basic simple recipe.
