Cookies were delish but the cooking time i found was too long... burnt the first batch when I left it in for 13mins... Try 10mins for a chewy treat! Also I replaces the wheat bran and rolled oats with special k and got some fab results! Read More

First off, I changed a handful of ingredients. Instead of the butter I substituted applesauce (cut down on the greasiness of the other reviews), cut the white sugar in half, used whole wheat flour, as well as wheat germ instead of bran( Its all I had on hand). they are really good, could be even better with some chocolate chips or by doubling the peanut butter. No need for the extra oils in the butter when the peanut butter holds all the oils you need. delicious. Read More

This recipe turned out just like I expected it to. They came out perfectly after about twelve minutes. My only complaint is the high fat content from all the butter plus high-fat peanut butter. They don't taste too rich but they are a little greasy. Next time I'll try halving the butter. They do spread out very thin so be sure to leave lots of space between them. Read More

Good but I used whole wheat flour and they came out burned at 15 minutes. Better at 10-12 minutes Read More

I added a bit extra brown sugar and took out some white sugar. They came out soft. They are a solid 4 until I add raisins or chocolate chips it adds to them just enough. I decrease the temp to about 300 and only bake them for around 12 mins to keep them chewy. Thanks a lot! Read More

Yum! Cooked for 12 minutes used 1/2 cup butter added teaspoon of salt added chocolate chips to half - delicious both ways! The best thing is that they don't taste "healthy" just good Read More

I substituted 1/4 c. flour for cocoa powder because nothing goes together better than chocolate and peanut butter. I think these cookies are great! I generally like soft cookies but the crunch from these is lovely. I use chunky peanut better because I like crunchy things and I think the peanuts go well with the oats. Read More

They seemed a bit bland at first so I added some chocolate chips and it helped a lot. They were super greasy but didn't spread out too much they we quite pretty cookies. I used chunky peanut butter for crunch but next time I might add something else for a kick... almond butter perhaps. Everyone really liked these! Try them frozen too. Read More

A wonderful way to increase your daily fiber intake! I used less sugars but added more bran just to cut calories. They turn out pretty chewy with just a hint of sweetness which is perfect for my whole family! I'm trying my next batch with chocolate chips - can't wait! Read More
