healthy cookie reciepe!

I'm looking for some reciepes for some HEALHTY cookies! (not like, no sugar, because while I'd love to not give them sugar, I'd rather them eat REAL NATURAL sugar, rather than some crazy articifal subsitute....)

I'm interested in many types of recipes so if you know of any, or know of any great sites please let me know :D thanks

  • Go to foodnetwork.com, and search for Ellie Kreiger's triple chocolate cookies. They're not health food, but they're lower in saturated fat, use whole grains, and have dark chocolate. They're always a hit when I make them!

  • I will make the basic tollhouse cookie recipe and substitute vegetable oil for half the butter, cut the sugar by 1/2 cup and add in 2 cups of quick-cooking rolled oats or bran cereal, 1 cup or more of dried fruit and 1 cup of dark chocolate chips. I can't keep these in the house, the kids love them so much.
