Instead of using Butter, I used Coconut Oil (Preferably Virgin) and the cookies tasted the same and were even healthier!
EatingWell reader Beverley Sharpe of California contributed this recipe. She updated a favorite treat by cutting back on sugar and incorporating whole grains. To increase protein, she replaces the rolled oats with 1 cup almond meal.
Instead of using one egg, I substituted 3 egg whites. I also used 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil in place of the 1/4 cup butter and 1/4 cup canola oil.
Simple recipe with a small list of ingredients. Note the cooking time listed (15 minutes) was too long. Mine were done in 10-12 minutes. Made about 30 cookies.
These cookies have a great flavor and the dough came together beautifully. And they were even husband approved! Noted baking time is a little long. Mine were done around 12-13 minutes. I will be making these cookies again!
