Very good although like almost everything I make I modified the recipe a bit. Instead of using the egg whites I used one whole egg I increased the oatmeal and reduced the flour a bit. I also added more chocolate chips. I got almost 3 dozen cookies using heaping teaspoons full. It's kind of a flat cookie. It's also a crispy on the outside chewy on the inside cookie. THX Read More

Remember people - it's nutritional value PER SERVING; the reason it appears to be so low in fat is because it claims to make 100 cookies one hundred from this amount of ingredients... I don't think so - - maybe 36? Read More

These were great with the changes I made. I used 1/2 cup of butter instead of the shortening, raw sugar instead of white, 1 cup whole wheat flour and 3/4 white flour, 2 tsp. vanilla, 2 whole eggs, 2 TBSP creamy peanut butter, and an extra half cup of oatmeal. Read More

These cookies were fabulous! The whole family loved them. They turned out chewy-soft and delicious. I did use two whole eggs instead of just the whites and regular sized chocolate chips.(about 3/4's cup) I also made the cookies larger and got about 3 dozen yummy cookies from the recipe. This recipe is a definite keeper. Read More

I thought these were really good. To get the full amount of cookies they have to be pretty small but that was okay since I'm doing Weight Watchers. I only needed a few to fill a craving so I used half the dough and let my daughter make a mess with the other half. We baked it anyway and daddy ate the whole pan.:) Read More

Don't let the "low-fatness" of this recipe disuade you from trying it. My husband (who incidentally hates anything labeled diet or low fat) scarfed these babies down like a goblin. Maybe someone should tell him that when you eat 30 at a time they cease to be low fat. Read More

I love the texture of these cookies!!! Although I added a TON more chocolate chips than it called for (maybe about 1.5 or 2 cups total) because my roommates are all about the chocolate. I guess it's not really that low fat with all that chocolate but they sure were tasty!!! Thanks for the great recipe Allison! Read More
