Calling these cookies is a little generous, they taste more like an oat muffin to me. However,considering these are meant to be more healty, you can't compare to a normal oatmeal cookie. They are good for what they are but I have some suggestions that I learned from making them. They will not spread at all like a normal cookie, so I would recommend flattening them before baking. Whatever shape you put in the oven is what they will come out looking like. I added walnuts and a raisin assortment which was nice. After the first batch I added cinnamon to the batter because I thought it was a bit bland. They recipes is forgiving and if you like spices I think allspice, nutmeg, and cinnamon would work nicely. I made this for my boyfriend who doesn't like sweets so I cut the sugar in half which was still good but may also be contributing to why this is tasting like a muffin. They baked for about 8 minutes in my oven.
