    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
