Healthy Oatmeal Cookies

My 14 month old baby girl has always been a good eater.
She loves to eat, [just like her momma and daddy], and even better is she eats well. 
Well she did. 
I fed her generous portions of fresh fruits and veggies since she was 5 months old. 
She had always loved them.
Until about 2 weeks ago.
If it's colorful, fruity, or veggie-y... it's a no go.
Not even her usual favorites (apple sauce, blue berries, avacado, peas, squash, strawberries...)
So yea, right now her diet consists of wheat bread, bananas (her ultra fav that she never turns down), milk, and chicken (second fav). 
Well I've been really worried about her lack of fruit and veggie vitamins lately so I tried this recipe for healthy Oatmeal Cookies:
 I added raisins and craisins and exed the walnuts to eliminate chocking hazzard. 
Now these cookies aren't as guilty/scrumptious as these were, but they are MUCH healthier.
Hardly any sugar, fruits (apples, raisins, craisins), and whole wheat flour makes them taste a little like a healthy cookie, but it IS a cookie none the less.
Definitely recommended for someone looking to replace a sweet treat with a healthier sweet treat.
 Oh, and of course, it passed the baby taste test!
