Introduction

This is a wholesome chewy cookie that satisfies the sweet tooth, but isn't just empty calories--it's a great way to incorporate whole grains. Substitute a multi-grain mix for added nutrition and fiber. Add mini chocolate chips, raisins, nuts, or coconut for variation.

    Sounds good, I plan to try these. Those of you with negative comments, please realize if a person is craving sweets, this is far better than many other choices. Sometimes we are also cooking for other family members who are not dieting, and all can share the same "healthier" treats! - 3/25/13

    Its junk. I love using SparkPeople, but I have yet to understand why they allow the posting of junk recipes. There's nothing clean about brown sugar or flour. Multi-grain does not alway = healthy. It must be whole grain. And really, 100 calories for 1 unfilling cookie. Think for yourself! - 3/25/13

    I substituted Splenda Brown Sugar and Egg Beaters but didn't change anything else. They were wonderful. - 12/11/12

    I like the idea of using whole grains, but not shortening.

    "Margarine, vegetable shortening and most commercial baked goods contain these artificially hardened fats and, along with them, TFAs. TFAs are just as bad if not worse for the heart and arteries than saturated fats. - Dr.Weil
