Yummy !

I used all butter instead of oil and really liked them. I usually like softer cookies but these were fine too. Yummy!

Cookies disappear fast - make a double batch! But try the modifications below!

Two modifications that I found worked for me: First, increase the oatmeal (make sure it is very finely ground) to 1 cup - this produces a thicker and chewier cookie. Also, try dark chocolate chips or chunks - they add a level of intensity to the recipe.

The first time I made these, I read the recipe wrong (1 cup oatmeal) and they were awesome - thick, chewy and a great texture. The second time, I made them as printed, and I found them to be flat and crunchy - still tasted great, but not the style of cookies my family prefers.

One thing I'd like to try next time - half of my family likes cranberries, so I may try half of the batch with a handful of craisins added to the end (in addition to the dark chocolate chips). Even raisins might be good.

Enjoy!

Healthier cookie, so I don't feel as guilty making these.

Not my favorite

These were quick to mix up and easy to bake however I prefer softer cookies.

If you use more oats, they are softer in the center :)

The best healthier version of a classic

I printed this recipe because of the vast # of reviews. I have to throw my thoughts into the mix as well. I absolutely love these cookies. They are the only whole wheat cookie I've been able to honestly say I love. In fact, I'd take these over a classic chocolate chip cookie, and that's saying something (I am a true sweets addict, and I have a hard time with "healthified" baked goods). Perfect cookie.

delicious, awesome texture, bakes beautifully

Easy Homemade Taste!

My husband is a cookie monster, but is very picky. We are trying to make healthier choices and this seemed like a good idea for us. We tried them and they tasted like my mother's homemade cookies! We will never buy store made cookies or dough again! AWESOME!

Fast and Easy to Make and Taste DELICIOUS
