I made these with all sucanat, Smart Balance margarine (I know, a sin), almond extract (out of vanilla), less almonds and choc. chips. I read the Choc. Chip variation and noticed that one used soft white wheat, which is what I grind for cookies. So I used 2 1/2 C of that for the oatmeal version. I used my Pampered Chef (2 T) cookie scoop and it made 75 cookies. I had to bake them for 15-16 minutes b4 I felt they were solid enough. They're crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. Great to have a healthier cookie, but doesn't taste "healthy".
