I made these a couple of days ago, and they turned out pretty good. The only reason I didn't mark them as 5-star was because they seemed to crisp and burn very, very easily. I wound up having to turn my oven down by at least 10 degrees and lower the cooking time by 2 minutes from the low time given in the recipe in order to not get crisp, dark brown edges. That being said, however, they all vanished quite quickly when I took them to work. Read More

Although easy not enough raisins or oatmeal. I'll add another 1/2 cup of each next time. And I found that scoops made with a small size ice cream scoop baked for exactly 15 minutes on a Silpat sheet turned out beautifully and stayed soft the next day (once cooled I stored in a Ziploc bag) Read More

Basic but effective! My first time baking O.R. cookies. I read some reviews first and made the following adjustments: Added a bit more oatmeal and raisins, in addition to the oil, added 1/4 cup melted/softened butter, added a little more brown sugar, reduced temp to 350, watched baking closely...removed from oven when edges got dark brown. Tops looked as if they may not be cooked through but they were. They are great!! They're very soft and chewy, with the perfect amount of sweetness. Good job on a simple recipe! Read More

These were pretty good. Not outstanding never stop eating no other recipe great but they were pretty good. But for only 100 calories and 3.5 grams of fat they were very tasty. I used egg substitute instead of egg and baking raisins ( more moist) and these were delicious. Beware after just a small amount of time in the oven they look very done but they're not. They've just turned color but they're not burnt. Even better these cookies slid right off the cookie sheet and the cleanup was quite easy. Overall good recipe. I would recommend it if you're looking for a fairly quick easy recipe that tastes good and is pretty health-conscious. Read More

I liked them but the recipe was very bland. I would add another 1/2 to 1 cup of sugar and I bet it would be a 5 star. Read More

very easy and quick absolutely wholesome with oats and oil (I used olive oil) but great taste indeed expecially if eaten while cooling. I'll just see how it keeps. Read More
