Love them! But be careful with substitutions
I have made these countless times over the years, and they are one our favorites. I love the oats and whole wheat (I use white whole wheat), and I always sub out 1/4 cup ww flour for 2 tablespoons flaxseed and 2 almond flour. Most whole wheat cookies just aren't as good as those made with regular white flour.
Having said that, I decided to try some of the suggestions made by others to make them more healthy. I started small: substituted 2 tablespoons of butter for 2 Greek yogurt. What a mistake! I could believe how much this changed the cookie! Dry, more cakey. Ok if you're ok with a healthy texture cookie (which I can live with), but definitely not a treat or something a kid would eat, which is why I make them. There is a tipping point here: I try to make healthier treats for my family, but they have to eat it first. Back to full amount of butter.
Pros: Easy and always turns out yummy
