This makes a nice snack cookie, not necessarily a sweet treat kind of cookie. Good and healthful. For variety add chopped raisins or currants or nuts.

Really good recipe! I used half butter & half applesauce, 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1/2 cup Splenda & cut down on the oats. I also omitted the water since I saw no need for it. I got about 30 from this. Thanks so much! Read More

This recipte is an okay oatmeal cookie base. Nothing spectacular. I have had better. You have to make sure to let the dough sit after it is made and form a little otherwise I got flat greasy cookies that ended up in the garbage. I can't way I will hold onto this one. Read More

These are great cookies, i have made the multiple times over this past winter. I keep a tupperware of cookie dough balls in the freezer so I can pop a couple in the oven whenever we feel like fresh warm cookies. The key to make sure they don't get dry is to watch your baking time. Take them out just before they look done. They continue to cook slightly on the pan as they cool. Yum, they are always a little crisp on the outside and chewy inside, Yum! Read More

I made these the other night and they came out very chewy, just the way my family likes them. I added cinammon to the batter and chocolate chips to half of the batter for my daughter and raisins in the other half for my son. I recommend this recipe for anybody who wants to add more complex carbos. to their diet. Very good! Read More

I followed this recipe exactly and they are the best I have ever had. I made giant dough balls for very big cookies. Don't over bake. In the future i may try to play with the amount of sugar and try using applesauce instead of butter just to make it even more healthy. But if that does not work I'll be using it as is. Thanks for a great cookie! Read More

I made these for DH. Like others he said they were a little dry but he still really liked them and was suprised when I told him they were made with whole wheat flour. I quartered this recipe since I wasn't sure how they would turn out and I added a few dashes of cinnamon as well as a dash of nutmeg and raisins until it looked like there were enough! I would make this again but would add either an extra egg or some applesauce. Read More

I made these with dried blueberries instead of raisins (thats all I had) and they came out great! My family really enjoyed them. Nobody knew they were whole wheat until I said so. Also they freeze well. Read More

I added a mix of dried cherries dried cranberries and raisins. Actually thought they tasted better the next day. Baked 2 trays on Release foil and 2 trays using baking spray with flour in it - both worked no problems with cookies sticking to the sheets. Read More
