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
Surprisingly Tasty!

I was surprised by how tasty these were! This is probably about as healthy as you can get them, so I'll be sticking with this recipe. I didn't give it 5 stars, because only my favorite Alton Brown recipe gets 5 stars. :)


Move over Tollhouse....This is my new favorite recipe. These are delicious. :)
