I bake cookies every month for a visit to an Assisted Living Home. Several of the residents are diabetic, so I thought I would try this recipe so they would have their own special cookies. I hate to say it, but they were pretty much a disaster. I dropped them by the tablespoon and they did not spread out at all. They are so dry you can barely eat them. I added a little milk to the last of the batter and patted the dough down so that they spread a tiny bit. They just do not seem to have enough liquid in them for all the dry ingredients. Any suggestions? Disappointed in Georgia.
Great recipe. Since it called for granular splenda and not the blend, the first batch was a little dry. I modified it by adding 1 tablespoon of brown sugar. Love these!
I also used craisins. I soaked them in warm water for 1/2 hour first and then drained the water before adding them. This added just enough moisture to make them softer. I think it may also have removed some of the sugar coating on the craisins so that may help with calorie count.
I'm sure my diabetic fater-in-law will enjoy these cookies. I love the taste, too. Very easy to prepare & delicious!!!
Good taste a little soft and maybe a little too sweet, but good. Now if we could just come up with something to get rid of half the fat. I added some nuts with the rasins
Excellent oatmeal cookie recipe..my husband walked through the kitchen and grabbed a cookie and said, this is a great oatmeal cookie!
I don't understand why this recipe got quite a few good ratings. I only made the following changes: coconut oil instead of butter (which I have done before & it never affected the recipe), and no raisins. The dough & cookies were WAY too dry. They didn't spread out at all (stayed in round balls on the sheet), and just crumbled to pieces.
These were good but a little crumbly and didn't raise much. I also used a scant cup of Splenda since one reviewer said they were too sweet. Personally I think 1 cup as listed in the recipe would have been better. My DH has diabetes so will be making these again. Thanks for the recipe.
YUM! I love these. Just took the thrid batch out... almost 2 batches gone. Whoops. I put semi sweet chocolate chips in mine, I don't care for raisins. My kids love them as well. THANK YOU!! :)
These are great! I used craisins and Splenda, and followed the instructions as written except I made them a little too big. Not a problem - I ate three as soon as they were cool enough to handle. They made a wonderful dinner. Thanks for a great cookie recipe.
My whole family loved them!
