If you are looking for a healthy recipe that is as good as regular chocolate chip cookies this is not it. They are ok, but chewy and grainy. My husband and I do not like the texture at all and they are not nearly as sweet. I was hoping they would be very similar to my old standby, but sadly they are not. I know they are a healthy version, but I think I would rather eat the regular cookies less often. They are much better.

I'm 10 and I made them (I'm a health nut). My grocery store doesn't carry wheat flour so I substituted it with all porpose flour. They were great!! One of my brothers thinks that they were brick solid!!!!! Definitly making them again!!!

These are great healthy-ish cookies! I have to admit I did make them a little healthier by subing the 1/4 cup of oil for applesauce and being a little lazy just put the oats in as is and they still turned out awesome. Definitely will make again. I used half chocolate and half white chips.

These cookies are AWESOME! My 10 year old son loves them as much as I do. I had been searching for a healthier chocolate chip cookie recipe, and luckily found this one! Thank you Bev for a delicious and healthier option. This will definitely replace all my other c.c.c. recipes!
