    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

    These are an awsome way to eat breakfast! I added an extra teaspoon of cinnamon, nutmeg, and used raisins and cranberries. The extra spices really picked up the flavor...These are going to be a new staple for my breakfast as they are so easy to make and conveniant to take! Thank you! - 11/3/09

    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!

    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

    YIKESI I just tried to flip my cookies over, but cooked them on parchment paper & they are stuck. 1st time making them. Next time I will spray paper w/non-stick spray. They look good other than that. I used homemade applesauce, added a touch of salt, used brown sugar & egg replacements. - 1/13/16

    Didn't look anything like the picture, barely resembled a cookie. Had to flatten them with a spoon before turning over for last 2 mins of baking. Flavour was just ok and texture was slightly dough-like. I am not a novice to baking, but won't make these again...so disappointed :( - 10/25/14

    I made these as recipe is written. I thought these cookies would spread out a little but they didn't. So I have more like baked oatmeal. I do think it needs a little salt. I will make them again and add crasins and orange zest for the holidays. Also think I will make ten thinner cookies. - 10/9/14

    when I tried this recipe the cookies were flavorful, but a bit dry. the next time I use this recipe I will add 1/4 stick of margarine. Other than that I thought they were good - 9/15/13

    These were ok for a low fat cookie. They were a little bland but edible. The texture was a little different than I'm used too. It could have been the way I made them though.

    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

    I made these recently. I sub'd the raisins to chocolate chips, sugar to an agave / stevia mix, and used oat flour instead. Also added some cinnamon and nutmeg. They are tasty, but I think it is definitely a meal and not as much of a tasty treat. Good though. - 3/5/12

    Not bad. I was hesitant as there was no oil. These aren't bakery cookies by any means and they are a little spongy However, they fit the bill for fixing my sweet craving and that's what's most important. Also, I made 10 smaller cookies because I like the choice of having 2 cookies. - 5/19/11
