    CalorieCounter's Note:

    I found this recipe in a Low Calorie cookbook that was written before Low Calorie was truly en vogue. I made these cookies last weekend and the whole family LOVED them. They stay soft, but are best right out of the oven. (They won't stay around long anyway!)

      These cookies are amazing!!!! Loved the taste, texture, and ease of reciepe. My only problem with this was that I had to cook my cookies for 12 mins. (took one whole set of 36 to figure it out..LOL) the 2nd set I used 1/4 cup whole wheat flour and 3/4 all purpose. I wanted to use all whole wheat flour but hubby is against that LOL Anyway they turned out great once I cooked them for 12 mins. I used a teaspoon to drop the cookies on the sheet. (an eating teaspoon not a measuring teaspoon.) The oatmeal part of this reciepe is great because it is really good for you. I can't wait to take them to Thanksgiving dinner tonight at my Mom's and my MIL's. I am not going to tell anyone that they are low cal ect til they eat them. I made them healthier too by using whole wheat flour. I am staying healthy forever, so if they want me to bring cookies they will be healthier then what they are used to. I am really glad that I found this reciepe. I will be making it again very soon and often to help my sweet tooth. Thanks !!!!!!!

      Great recipe! If you put the batter in the fridge for 30-45 minutes and bake it straight out of the fridge, they'll crisp up and be less soft!

      Very good. I went with the advice of other reviewers and added 3/4 of a cup of the peanut butter, used light butter and tripled the vanilla like I do on all recipes! They were very good for lower calorie cookies. My husband also enjoyed them. He liked that they were less greasy than traditional peanut butter cookies.
