This is my first attempt at really filling snow-stomping winter cookies. I doubled the recipe but used 3T. soy margarine and 2/3c applesauce. I also put in about 1/3 cup nuts and 2/3c dried fruit. I would love to put safe chips in these but can only find mint flavored choc. chips. Anyway I might fiddle with this and make them more granola bar like and less cookie like. I used to eat trail mix while working in winter and this is my substitute. So with 33 grams of fat from the margarine and 28 from the nuts and maybe 15 from the oats divided by 60 cookies equals 1.3 grams per cookie but that doesn't seem right. Oh well either way I think they are safe and you don't have to put nuts in.
