Pumpkin Spice is cheaper than all those individual ingredients, and <br/>2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour are way cheaper than adding whole wheat flour! Cut the sugar in half because the raisins are plenty sweet. One egg is good enough for me, and I used butter not oil (but only because I use butter for everything!). <br/>

With easy modifications this recipe can be made healthier. The sugar can be reduced to half (3/4 cup), 100% whole wheat flour can be used entirely (2 3/4 cups,)and unsweetened applesauce can be substituted for the oil. I add a third egg to increase the protein content and moisture and make 24 cookies instead of 48. The result is a lightly sweet, pleasant cake-like cookie that my clients have named "muffin tops." It would be helpful to have this modified version with the nutrition facts.

The cookies were very moist. I baked them the night before and they were a little sticky by morning. Next time I will cut the amount of oil in half.
