I like to think these oatmeal treats are better for you than the standard chocolate chip cookie. Our three sons just can't get enough of them. And they have no idea I've make the cookies healthier. —Carol Birkemeier of Nashville, Indiana

"Out of the 8 reviews, no one has actually said they made the cookies and how they turned out. I thought the purpose of rating a recipe was to help others to determine if they would make the recipe, how it turned out and any tips or comments if the recipe was a flop. Please stick to the topic of rating the recipe instead of writing about the sugar content. Go on the internet, I am sure there is a something on there that would aid in finding out the sugar content of a recipe. Gee can't get a good review lately."

"Answering Kathyhh's question about the egg substitute. 1/4 cup of egg substitute is one whole egg. So add two eggs into the recipe."
