"I call these my "Gobble Them Up" cookies because they are so healthy and delicious, you won't just want to eat one! They are bite-sized cookies, the star ingredient is the oats and there is just enough flour to hold all the ingredients together."
Serving Size: 1 (37 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 16
"I gobbled these cookies right up! They were so satisfying with a wonderful toasted flavor. They would be a good choice for a breakfast cookie, too. I used white sugar. Thanks Hellokitty, for posting. Roxygirl"
"Absolutely the best cookie that I have eaten. I had to add just a smidgen more water to the batch to get them to hold, because I did not have time to soak the raisins before I put them in the batch."
"I had a craving for oatmeal cookies so I tried out this recipe. Loved them! The 1/3 cup of sugar was fine. Next time I do them I may add some apple sauce to add a bit of moisture."
"I added choc chips,doubled the ingredients and made this as a slice to put in lunch boxes - cooked it for about 25 minutes and it was a terrific success - fairly addictive too - so many thanks to hellokitty"
"A very healthy treat, chewy. They retained their shape when baking. Use 1/3 c sugar, i think you can use even less of that amount. Only use 1/2 c raisins. Got 19 cookies out of this recipe"
"These are definitely "gobble-able"! I doubled this, and the first batch made as is, and the second I felt would benefit from some chocolate chips. :) That was even better. What I had problems with was shaping the balls. They were so sticky in my hands, and yet little crumbs were falling everywhere. I was afraid I would end up with granola. But the first batch did come out looking just like they did when they went in, only a tiny bit darker. They did hold together as balls when cooled. The second batch, I thought I'd add a sprinkle of water, and it helped, yet made the dough even stickier, which really adhered to my hands more than any dough I'd ever worked with (in the future, I'll use the spoon instead of my hands). I don't know if it was those extra droplets or if it was the chocolate chips, but these balls spread out like normal cookies, and some were spread out enough to break apart when cooled (no big deal). They were both delicious cookies. For ingredients, I used whole wheat pastry flour, ground flaxseed instead of wheat germ, and half dried raw cane juice and half white sugar, using the full amount (I like my cookies sweet). And I would say that the cookies are flavorful because they use wholesome ingredients! Thanks for a useful and beneficial recipe."
"These were delcious!!!! I used half sultanas and half raisins! I also really liked the taste of 1/3 cup sugar because, like you said, it really made the raisin taste stand out! Thanks for the recipe!"
"Mmm, YUMMY!! If you are looking for some great healthy oatmeal cookies...make these!! I loved the texture of these cookies because of the ratio of oats to flour. This created a nice chewy cookie. Maybe it was just my imagination but I found these cookies to be very flavorful - almost a little cinnamon-y even though there is no spice. I decreased the sugar to the 1/3 cup like suggested which I really enjoyed. I must have made my cookies a bit smaller as I got more than 16. I would definitely recommend these!! Thanks hellokitty!"
