    I thought maybe the blandness others mentioned was due to the lack of salt. I used a whole Eggland's Best egg, 1/4 brown sugar instead of white (for more richness), added a couple Tbsp of flour and a 1/2 tsp of salt, and they turned out great. So easy! - 7/19/09

    Though not the best oatmeal cookie I have ever eaten, it was pretty awesome considering it fits well with my eating plan! I followed other reviews and added pumpkin spice and extra cinnamon as well as brown sugar instead of white. Thanks for a great recipe! - 8/5/10

    These are great for that quick breakfast alternative. Substitued 1/2 of the sugar for stevia and used organic steel cut oats for the oatmeal, a little chewy but nothing you can't handle. Also substitued dried cranberry's for 1/2 rasins. Well def make again, thank you! - 10/7/10

    I made these with Splenda, a tsp of pumpkin pie spice, a little extra applesauce and 1/4 tsp salt. Without raisins/nuts/sugar they're 100 cal each, and incredibly delicious. Next time how can I make them "lighter" or fluffier though? Butter? More baking soda? - 7/17/10

    I just baked these and I really like them. I was nervous about them because they looked a little strange before cooking, but they're great! I can see what people mean about them being a little bland, but I'm not sure what could be changed, I'll comment again if I find something.

    Thanks for this! - 11/7/10

    I am looking forward to trying these. Just wondered about the temp. 365 Degrees? Is that correct? And is it possible to make them little cookies? Just wondering. I am looking forward to trying them out on my DD and her friend. :)

    Yes 365 degrees is correct. And of course you can make them smaller, i would just lower the baking time and temperature. Just play around with the recipe & enjoy!

    I made this last night since my son had a craving for oatmeal cookies... right in the middle of the prep, I realized we had no eggs :-s So I had to skip that ingredient and they turned out good... Also added some honey & 1/2 tsp of salt. Got approval of my son & brothers :-) Great & easy! Thx ;-) - 6/28/10

    These turned out pretty well... I added a bit of nutmeg per other suggestions and also used 1/2 sugar and 1/2 Splenda and a mix of dried cranberries and raisins. Overall, they were pretty good - still a bit plain, but it might just be me still getting used to the taste of whole wheat flour - 6/23/10

    I made two batches, one original and one modified. Everyone liked the original but thought it was a little bland. For the second batch, I used a pinch of salt and pinch of brown sugar and dark chocolate chips instead of raisins. Everyone loved it. The cookies are so big that DD and I split one. - 3/17/10

    I made these over the weekend. Not too bad. Definitely had flavor because I added a little more cinnamon. A little chewey but a keeper. Family could not really get past the dark color of them. Maybe because of the wheat flour? Maybe the extra cinnamon? I will definitely make them again. - 2/8/10

  • After reading the other comments, I substituted palm coconut sugar for the white sugar to give it more of a molasses flavor. I also added 1/2 tsp nutmeg, 1/2 tsp ginger and 1/2 tsp allspice and instead of applesauce, I used 1 small banana. I baked them for 8 minutes before flipping. Turned out great - 10/22/12

  • Easy to make. Very nice portion. Based on other reviews I used brown sugar instead- adds about 10 calories more each cookie. Also doubled cinnamon. These were pretty good. Next time I will not put back in the oven after the initial 10 minutes, cut cinnamon to 3T, and maybe add more raisins. - 6/29/12
