    awesome gone fast

    cheryl s. from MISSION, BC

    Great cookie, I used blueberry applesauce and chocolate chips. The applesauce keeps them healthier, moist and the blueberry flavor came through just a tad in the cookie. I may try a new flavor next. yummy cookies

    Good Oatmeal Cookies

    Chrissy Spencer from Littleton, CO

    I made these yesterday and I liked them. I am used to oatmeal and raisin so these were a nice change. I used mini chocolate chips though and it felt like the chocolate was taking over the cookie. Maybe less next time.

    Grace Bohr from Iowa

    I made a few changes in this recipe. I used sweetened cinnamon applesauce and reduced the brown sugar to 1 cup. Also I reduced the granulated sugar to a 1/4 cup. They turned out good and tasted great. Always a favorite!

    Good-For-You Oatmeal Choc. Chip Cookies

    Yummy For My Slimming Tummy

    JESSICA SIVCO from New Ringgold, PA

    Just made these cookies since I was snowed in. They combine both of my favorite cookies, with the added benefit of lower fat with using the applesauce. They only downside was it was hard to judge the first trays doneness since dark brown sugar is used. I will try light next time and see if there is any difference. After all, they both have the same amount of calories.

    Delish cookies. I made these with my children and they were so yummy. I believe the best cookies I have ever made and very easy. I think I may try to make these with cranberries sometime instead of chocolate chips. Definitely try these!

    YUMMY

    JACQUELINE BLACKBURN from Rock Falls, IL

    Very good cookies. I don't tell them they are more healthy for them. I use the applesauce in many of my dessert recipes to make them less fat and healthier. Most people can never tell.

    I made these healthier...YUM!

    BARRIE MACLAUCHLIN from Danville, KY

    I made these healthier by subsituting oil for the butter and adding 1/2 the sugar. Since I have a picky eater, I put in finely chopped nuts so she couldn't really taste them and put the oatmeal in the coffee grinder so it was fine. I also made them into bars, cooking for 20 minutes. DELICIOUS! Will definitely save and make these again!

    Easy and very good

    GINGER PHILLIPS from LINCOLN, AR

    Made these last night for a Cookie Exchange this evening. Lots of ladies on weight watchers thought this would be a good one. I made 1/2 without nuts, 1/2 with pecans. I used mini chips and 1/4 c. splenda baking instead of sugar. I used old fashion oats, 1st batch oats seemed tough. Left in longer next batch good. I prefered the ones with nuts. Tonight will tell how good the girls like them.

    Good Oatmeal/Chocolate Cookie

    Judy Del Tosto from Landenberg PA

    My kids like oatmeal and chocolate chip cookies, and this recipe provides both in one cookie. I only used a 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon due to one of the kids not liking it very much. I also used white morsels to make my youngest son happy. I will definitely keep this recipe and make it again.

    healthy choc-oat cookies

    Worked out fine. I used white whole wheat flour cut out 1/2 the sugar and used pumpkin. They freeze well too. A nice golden color.

    Perfect lunch box cookies

    Amanda Neppl from ,

    These cookies were great... the only thing I would change is maybe next time I'll leave out the cinnamon. In this recipe, the cinnamon almost reminds me too much of oatmeal and less of a choc. chip cookie. I did end up adding 1/2 C more oatmeal because I thought the dough was way too runny; but it didn't flatten out as I feared it would. It kept a great shape and is a hearty, chewy, yummy cookie. Freezes great as well! Next time I'm going to use mini choc. chips and bake them into 'bite size' cookies.

    Less fat/but not less taste

    Teresa Norton from TREZEVANT, TN

    I had one of these at a party tonight at a friend's home. I just had to come home and get my own recipe. We can't wait until the weekend to make some of these tasty treats. Even my husband can have some of these, because they have less fat. The applesauce will do the trick! Thanks.

    Great Cookies

    Elizabeth O'Sullivan from Chester, NY

    My husband is a sweet lover. He has recently has had two heart surgeries. He hates anything that he thinks is healthy. I made these cookies, used egg substitutes, less sugar. We love them, hot from the oven and refrigerated. I used old fashioned oatmeal and will probably process the oatmeal a little as he did not like the big size of the oatmeal. Thank you for this recipe. Oh, the rest of the family loved them too.

    0ld Fashioned Oatmeal Cookies

    Dave Prawdzik from Kenmore, NY

    The basic recipe was very good. I substituted raisins for the chocolate chips, used whole wheat flour, and egg beaters instead of egg whites. This gave it a little more healthy base and they tasted like the good oldfashioned cookies I remembered as a young boy.

    Liz Tierney from Martins Ferry, OH

    I baked these today. It is a generous recipe. I filled the cookie jar, and froze the rest. I use sheets of waxed paper in between the layers, because they will stick together otherwise. This cookie has a real old fashioned taste. The texture is chewy if not overbaked.

  •  Star(s)

    Not too crazy about this

    Mudi Apoe from Waterbury, CT

    I wasn't too crazy about how these turned out. Could be because I was expecting it to taste like oatmeal cookies with some chocolate chips in it. Instead the chocolate chips overwhelmed everything else (I'm not big on chocolate chip cookies - I know, I'm weird). Anyway, less chips may help next time, but I doubt it.

    Really great cookies!

    Karen Laurienzo from Euclid, OH

    I was looking for a simple yet delicious snack to share at our parents meeting at school, and this recipe turned out wonderfully! In order to save on time, I made them into bar cookies instead ( by baking them in a jelly roll pan at 350* ), and they received rave reviews at the meeting. My kids (aka, the taste testers) loved them too, so I'll have to make them again!

  •  Star(s)

    Yummy

    A Jones from ARLINGTON, TX

    After read all the reviews, I alter the recipe a bit and the cookies came out great. I use 3/4 cup of whole wheat flour and 1 cup of all purpose. I also use less sugar, only 1 cup of brown sugar in total. My family enjoy the cookies a lot. I will surely make again.
