Too Crumbly and Crispy

These cookies fell apart and were hard to scrape off the sheet, even after generous greasing.

loved the idea of these

I used 1/4 cup almond meal, 1/2 cup lightly ground rolled oats, the reest whole wheat flour, and spends for the white sugar and I added dried cranberries for half of the choc chips-they were delicious but I would like them to be less crumbly and a little more chewy, anyone have a healthy suggestion to accomplish that texture?

easy to make

I feel that the ratio of fat

I feel that the ratio of fat to flour is too low. I weigh my ingredients and this helps me to tweak recipes before I bake them. For this recipe I plan on using 130 grams (one cup, spooned and leveled) of whole wheat flour and only 35 grams of oats. That would very roughly be 1/3 cup, I believe. I would also decrease both sugars to 55 g, scant 1/4 cup. I leave the fat as is which by weight is 56 g of butter and 42 g of oil.

Bev's Beauties!

Thanks Bev for a delicious cookie recipe. It is nice to offer kids a favourite cookie with an improved ingredient list that the kids find even more delicious than the standard/typical recipe. This will be a new regular in our house. (I did bake them for 11 minutes only.)

Sweet, delicious, quick
