I tried this recipe with a few changes. Instead of the oats I use almond meal, I use olive oil instead of canola and use 2/3 cup Splenda brown sugar blend. I bake them for about 11-13 minutes. Everyone who has tried my version have absolutely loved them. They disappear quite fast. I love these so much better than any store bought brand, including the refrigerated dough kind. They do come out cripsy, so if you are a chewy fan, you may want to pass.

These are wonderful cookies. At first taste, I thought they weren't sweet enough. But they grew on me quickly. I only wish they were less crispy--I like chewy ccc's. But I would definitely make again.

What a great alternative! I substituted unsweetened applesauce for the oil & used 63% dark chocolate chips & baked about 11-12 minutes. I can't wait to experiment adding nuts, wheat bran & other flavors!

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.
