"Cookies were delicious! My husband loved them which is a real compliment!! I will try some of the suggestions, one at a time from the reviews so as not to ruin the recipe. Did not have corn syrup and substituted honey, which was fine."

"These were pretty tasty ! I was worried about how dry the dough was, but I saw one review that added applesauce. I mixed 1/4 c in before putting in the oven. PERFECT !"

"We thought these were very good for a cookie with virtually no fat!! My husband is a diabetic so substituted Splenda for the sugar and used white whole wheat flour. I also decided to add 4 oz. of applesauce since there was no oil. Very most, chewy cookie that I've now made four times! LOL, hubby loves them!! Thanks for the recipe! I treasure it!"

"I have been cooking for over 30 years but only recently have I been baking fat free or as close as I can get. Looked all over for a good oatmeal cookie that keeps its integrity while lowering calories and fat. This one is it! I did change the sugar to brown sugar and the corn syrup to honey. I also used one egg beater and one real egg white as this is all I had. Great recipe. i have always had good luck when using a Taste of home recipe.

"I also used honey instead of corn syrup and dropped the sugar to 1/3 cup. I added chopped walnuts. These cookies were wonderful! Excited to have a recipe that is low fat and not too much sugar. I've made them on several occasions."

"I changed this recipe a bit: instead of using corn syrup, I substituted honey. Then I cut back on the sugar, and used brown sugar instead of white sugar. I only used about 1/4 cup of brown sugar, since the honey made it sweeter. The dough was very thick, and I was worried, but after they came out of the oven they were quite puffy and soft, and tasted great!"

"These are great considering there's no fat, but when I make them again I think I will try replacing some of the white sugar with brown sugar to give them a slightly sweeter flavor."
