    I have made this for years but cut the sugar in half and it makes absolutely NO difference in the taste. - 4/7/09

    The problem with the calorie count is that the margarine was entered into the calorie calculator as .9 tsp and not as 1/2 cup or 8 tablespoons. This error results in a major miscalculation of the calories in each cookie. For this kind of calorie count, I can have some really good dark chocolate. - 1/20/09

    Old favorite of my family. I do replace half butter with applesauce, use half as much sugar, add cocoa powder and raisins, and cut some of the calories. Still not a health food. - 11/28/09

    these cookies have been one of our favorites for years no, they may not be a staple of your weight loss plan, but i think that home made treats are better for you than processed low cal least you know whats in them. - 4/7/09

    Cookies were great. I did use 7 whole grains, by Quaker, and instead of sugar used Sun Crystals-20 packs. I also used DaVinci Sugar free Vanilla Syrup, and Hood Low carb milk. It was excellent. - 1/2/10

    I loved these cookies growing up. But the nutritional value in this recipe is misleading. And even if the calorie count were correct, I can't possibly eat just one (especially if it's such a tiny one!). Some things just have to be saved for the splurges. - 4/7/09

    I used to make these for my kids when they were little. They are very good. I got 26 cookies because I used the small cookie scoop from Pampered Chef. I allow myself one a day. It satisfies my need for something sweet. - 1/20/09

  • I have a problem with the consistency of this cookie, they always turn out runny:( I will try again this afternoon) they are my favorites. I agree with the quote of knowing what goes into my childrens snacks and always try to make them from scratch. - 1/10/10

  • A grandson of mine likes no bake cookies. I will try these for him. His brother says he only get a couple for each batch. He doesn't have the same sweet tooth! - 12/22/09

  • When I make these, I use chocolate milk and less sugar (about 1 1/2 cups), and only 2 cups each of PB and oats. A little less sweet but still oh so delicious - 8/3/09

  • I put these same ingredients into the calorie counter and they calculated at least 150 calories/cookie and that is assuming you can get 30 cookies per recipe. So I am not sure where less than 100 calories/cookie is coming from. I love these cookies...but they are NOT good for you! - 1/20/09

  • Look up No Bakes with Craisins and Splenda and Microwaved. You don't have to add the Craisins. Exact measurements were used. - 1/20/09

  • The ingredients used to come up with calorie count is flawed...tainted if you will. It using less than a tsp on margarine, more than a half cup of milk (.5 is half not .6), and not a full tsp of vanilla either to calculate calories. Make sure you add in more calories for this one to count margarine. - 1/8/09

  • The classic no-bake cookie still stands the test of time. But, I don't see how you can possibly get 30 cookies from this recipe. I came up with 18. Maybe if you dropped them out with a teaspoon instead of a tablespoon it could make 30. - 11/15/08

  • Very yummy, but I didn't get 30 servings. Perhaps I made the cookies a little big! I stored them in the refrigerator. - 7/10/08
