This recipe is great! Low-fat, super simple, and cookie-satisfying (ok, it IS a lot like baked oatmeal, but I love oatmeal desserts). I make 2 cookies from a single batch (toaster oven natch), or 6 cookies from a double batch. I add raisins and chocolate chips, yum yum. One warning: measure the applesauce instead of winging it as I often do. You want just enough applesauce to moisten, to hold it together; any more and you have a rubbery, less-than-tasty cookie. Get it right, shape the dough to the final size and shape you want (it doesn't rise or spread), bake, and enjoy. This works with 'Zaar recipes for instant oatmeal, too, saving me from going to the store for instant oatmeal when I always have old-fashioned oats for baking. I like it best with the "apples & cinnamon" flavor (with raisins & choc chips added too), even tho' I prefer "maple & brown sugar" (with same add-ins) if I'm eating oatmeal for breakfast. Good (soft, chewy) cookie that's a bit healthier! UPDATE: I made a double batch of these to bring on a trip. I added ground up (yay, Krups coffee grinder!) chewable multivitamins and chewable fiber tablets, as many as days on the trip. Individually wrapped, perfect breakfast-on-the-go from home. Versatile!

I suppose this could potentially be a wonderful cookie, although mine didn't turn out so great. I was a lot on the dry side (even though I added 1 teaspoon of apple sauce. It also wasn't quite sweet enough and the texture wasn't very cookie-ish.

Not bad at all! I tried it once using oats instead of an oatmeal package and it didn't turn out very well. The second time, I used maple brown sugar mix and it turned out wonderfully!

I really like these. Super easy to make, quick and healthy. They are great when you want something slightly sweet, without messing your whole kitchen, or adding to your waistband. Even the young kids I babysit like them. I have used different sized packets, and gotten the same result. My favorite is to double this, add 1 TB ground flaxseed, 1/4 c. raisins, and make it into 6 smaller cookies. Perfect snack for little hands and mouths! THANKS!

I loved this one and thought it was a clever way to enjoy a treat without then having to worry about a kitchen full of temptation leftover. I used an oatmeal in a cup (WW strawberries and cream) which made this even easier as the cup served as my mixing bowl. A important tips to make this work, first make sure your "batter" is really well mixed and spread your cookie out for even baking. Mine was about 4-5 inches and 3/8 inch thick. Next time I will try it will 1/2 tablespoon of water for a little extra moisture.

The concept is clever, and it was something interesting to try. At 10 minutes baking time, it looked raw. At 15 minutes, it looked done, but it tasted raw. I think I would rather just have a bowl of oatmeal. I probably won't do this one again.
