Thanks for the great recipe! All in all, this is an awesome quick & easy, versatile recipe that uses ingredients you probably already have on hand.
Now for the changes...
I used whole wheat flour instead of all purpose, and apple sauce instead of oil. I didn't have wheat germ so left it out. My family doesn't like things very sweet so I halved the sugar and glazed the top with honey about 5 minutes before they were done to make it shiny with just a hint of sweetness. They were nice and chewy but crispy on top when I made them about 1/2 inch thick, and didn't take 30minutes to be done (maybe if you want them crunchier?).
Also, instead of raisins I used what I had on hand: dried cranberries, coconut flakes, sliced almonds, and pumpkin seeds. I also added almond extract just for kicks.
Next time I make this, I'd like to try with a little more oats and a little less flour. We'll see how that goes :)...
