MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 28, 2012

I followed the recipe but left out chocolate chips. Very good for my diabetic husband that loves sweets. I used a small cookie scoop and make about 6-dozen.

These were very good, but I only had enough to make 36 using the tablespoon. I will leave out the mini choc.chips next time. I made some with out them and liked them better.

...never met a cookie I didn't like until this one.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 21, 2011

These cookies are scrumptious. I usually don't look for "healthier recipes". I only had 2 1/2 cups of oats so I used that as I am not a big fan of running to the store for a single item. They were still fantastic and my husband raved about them. The only thing that I would do different is make a double batch next time!!!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 27, 2011

Good cookie, but I agree the oatmeal flavor gets lost. Will cut down on the extras next time.
