    I made a few minor subs: unsalted butter for margarine, 2 egg whites for one of the eggs, added 2 c chocolate chips instead of 1, and made about 5-dozen medium-small cookies, making the calorie count about the same. Excellent, and hubby (who hates health food) wouldn't keep his paws off! - 5/28/08

    I loooooooooooooooooooooove these. Love them. So so so good. I flattened them down first, cooked them a little longer, and flipped them over halfway through - made for a less cake-y more cookie-ish cookie. So good! - 7/21/08

    Yum! I give them 4.5 stars, my husb.says 3.5 because they "taste healthy" - which is why I give them 4.5! I used old fashioned oats which I'm sure contributes to that. Otherwise followed the recipe exactly, but did bake for 15 instead of 12. I enjoy the hearty flavor and it's a filling cookie. - 7/11/09

    Definate 5, but they do take a little longer to cook than expected. I love a chewy cookie and these fit the bill just great! - 1/29/09

    i use egg beaters, and use 100% splenda, and add 1.5 tsp cinnamon. i also grind the oats in the food processor before adding which makes it a smoother texture, which my husband prefers. and i bake at 375 for 14 min. then place on papertowels to cool which absorbs some grease. - 8/30/09

    Just made these and I love them!
    I made some of them too big, but the little ones are perfect sized and filing! Sweet- but not overwhelmingly so.

    Thanks! - 9/23/08

    I made these this morning. The first bite I thought, "Wow I can taste the whole wheat flour". Then by the second bite I thought "Hey, these are great". The only thing I did different was I didn't add the nuts and added 1/2 cup more of chocolate chips. And I made mine a bit smaller and baked 15 mins. - 7/24/10

    Yummy yummy! These went from having a noticeable whole-wheat flavor when warm (good or bad depends on your preference, but I knew hubby wouldn't stand for it!) to perfect sweetness when cooled. So stop being so greedy and wait for them to cool off before you stuff them in your mouth. - 2/1/10

    Mmmm smells so good in my house right now! These turned out pretty good. A chewy cookie. I used baking stones, and these needed to be in the oven for about 16 minutes. We'll see what the boyfriend thinks of them tomorrow! - 3/31/08

  • I was looking for a healthier chocolate chip cookie and this one seems to fit the bill. I used 2 1/2 cups of chocolate chips for hubby and the girls because they love their chocolate. I kept everything else the same. I agree with prior comment to flatten the cookies for a cookie shape. Delicious! - 3/18/14

  • Great recipe! This was the first time I've baked in literally years. I wanted to make something for a social gathering and was really nervous. These ended up being fantastic and everyone loved them - I got so many compliments! - 1/14/14
