Made these today with some changes. I cut the butter back to 1/2 cup and added 1/4 cup applesauce, scant 1/2 cup peanut butter, used Whey-Low sugar and brown sugar which only have 4 calories per tsp, used scant 2 cups oatmeal, 2/3 cup butterscotch chips, 4 tbsp choc chips and 2/3 cup toffee bits. The cookies turned out fine, mine were soft: don't know if they were supposed to be crispy . The yield was 54 cookies instead of 60 and they are 77 calories per cookie. I can never eat just one cookie so these fit my requirements without breaking the calorie bank.

These cookies weren't bad per se, but they were a little bit crumblier than I would prefer. They weren't horrible, just not my cup of tea.

I just viewed the recipe and the ingredients seem to be quite common for cookies. It 'might' have a little too much pb and butter that could make them flaky and break apart. The do look good, so I hope more people have tried it and will post.

This was a waste of ingredients. These cookies completely fell apart. As soon as you pick them up they crumble. I am not an amateur baker, very disappointed in this recipe. :(
