Didnt add any extras but did put in the cinnamon! Substituted flax seed for the butter.

These are awesome!!! We added 1/2 tsp cinnamon and 1 cup raisins and about 1/4 more oats because it was a little runny. Next time i will try and reduce the sugar 1/4 cup to see if it's missed and make it even healthier. Thanks!!

So delicious! I went half on the salt after reading there was a bit much and added cinnamon. Added butterscotch and chocolate chips and they were amazing!

Surprisingly yummy for such low calorie/fat cookies! I used butter sub instead of real and slightly more oats than called for because my batter was slightly runny. Baked for 12 minutes exactly and was surprised they were nice and tall. Tried one after they cooled and could really appreciate their less sweet taste....by my calculations they are 60 calories per cookie the way I made them....and a bit more hearty given the oats and honey. Thanks for a healthy treat!

I can't believe how yummy these are! The first time I made them exactly as stated. The second time I modified the following: yogurt instead of butter; no honey, just extra brown sugar; since my last ones fell apart easily, I put this batch in mini-muffin tins (fill only 2/3 full). These turned into fabulous little muffins!! The outsides were crunch like a cookie and the insides were soft and cakey like a muffin. I'm going to try substituting two egg whites for the egg next time.

I added walnuts, shredded apple, cinnamon and extra whole wheat flour. The batter seemed a bit "wet" and I was afraid the shredded apple would make it wetter. I doubt the extra 1/3 cup flour was necessary. It made the cookies cakelike. I will make these again. The flavor is good and I like the fact they are healthy. Next time I will add an extra tablespoon of butter and perhaps just a little extra flour. I really enjoyed this recipe. Plan to put them in my son's lunch.

Great recipe! I used this to make a cookie "crust" for a fruit pizza dessert last week (standard recipe calls for a sugar cookie dough crust), and my whole family raved about it and asked for it again this week. I added chopped dates. It was flavorful and definitely more healthful than sugar cookies!

Exceptional cookies. I took a real chance and super halved the recipe to make only fifteen cookies as I didnt have enough oats for what the full recipe called for. These were delicious. They honey taste is present but not overwhelming, and they taste is good enough that you could probably even cut back the brown sugar a tad if you had to; but they are not overly sweet as is. Texture is a cross between chewey and firm; not stick to your teeth but not powdery cakey either. My 5 yr old daughter loved them; we used all organic ingredients and threw a few organic chocolate drops in a couple. Thanks for sharing.

As a homeschool mom of 4 boys, I am always hunting for healthy options for desserts and snacks. This hearty cookie recipe was a HUGE success!!! I did make a couple of changes... I used 1 cup w.w. flour, 2 cups rolled oats, and chilled the dough before scooping out onto cookie sheets. Since the recipe was plenty sweet, I will try decreasing the brown sugar next time. I will also double the recipe since this recipe only made 26 cookies when using a small ice cream scoop to drop dough on pans. Still, it's a great base recipe for a healthier cookie. :)

For such a small amount of butter, these cookies were amazing. I didn't used too much honey, and used a bit of brown sugar to substitute, as too much of honey would bother me. I added white and chocolate chips, and I think this goes much better with white chocolate chips than bittersweet. Will have to bake again! Amazing thicky, soft texture. Chewy. Great straight out of the oven.
