Love this recipe! I'm sure it was a great recipe as is, but to bump of the "health factor" a bit I made some substitutions that worked well. I know that drives some people crazy to change a recipe all around, but if it helps to tweak it, WHY NOT!? This way there's a healthier version to play with. Instead of all the butter I only used 1/4 cup of butter and added applesauce. Then I only used 1 cup of brown sugar. When I mixed in all the PB etc. I added one big banana too. I put in 1 and 1/2 cups of raisins because we like them and heated up 1/2 cup apple juice to let the raisins soak in and then I used that "raisin water" in place of the water called for in the recipe. I also added 1/3 cup of ground flax to give it some more good stuff. We eat them in the afternoon for a healthy snack or when we're running out the door on a busy morning.
