This is a great cookie recipe, love the taste of them. I used a little more of the whole wheat flour and vanilla (turn out great).

Loved these cookies. Aftr cutting the recipe in half, I used 1/2 cup butter & 1/2 cup applesauce & only 1 cup oatmeal. I also left out the walnuts. Very soft & yummy. thanks so much!

Enjoyed these cookies very much. I actually used 3 cups brown sugar to lessen sugar content a bit and it didn't seem to detract from the taste. Will be making them again. Great lunchbox stuffers for the kids.
