I followed the recipe exactly...except I forgot to add the oil so the batter was a little difficult to handle. I rolled the batter into balls and pushed them down onto the cookie sheet. They were delicious...a wonderful cookie but almost with a scone consistency...we kept going back for more. I'll be making these again...without the oil!

After reading all of the rave reviews, I decided to make these cookies. The only modification I made was using organic all-purpose flour since I didn't have any wheat flour in the house. I wanted to wait until after dinner to try one but they looked and smelled so good that I couldn't resist! All I can say is...WOW!! I had another one after dinner, too, and was still impressed. My husband and MIL couldn't believe it when I told them they were healthy and only 99 calories each! I got 2 dozen cookies...some bigger and some smaller. If you're debating on whether or not to try these, debate no more. I can't wait to try making them with the almond meal and wheat flour and playing around with the recipe further.
I've always wanted to try this recipe and I finally did last week. I made them for my sister for school desserts and she LOVES them! I love the crunchiness from the ground oats - but you can't tell that there is oats in them. I did the recommended heaping teaspoon portion and made 56 cookies! They are perfect bite size cookies. Have had a request to make a double batch next time around. Thank you!!!!!
considering there's very little butter in this recipe, the cookies tasted far better than i thought they would. The whole family loved them. I used olive oil, 2/3 cup evaporated cane juice sugar instead of the other sugars listed in the recipe, and quick-cooking oats, and the taste was amazing! These are chunky,crunchy cookies, and take exactly 15 minutes to cook. i also love the use of rolled oats.
these are amazing! my 3 boys loved them and gobbled them up. used 3/4 cup almond meal and 1/4 oats the second time and we liked them even better! next time i will try using stevia for the white sugar and applesauce to make them even more healthy.
