    Robb, these are FANTASTIC. I made them for a church bake sale and they went over HUGE. When I make them again, I might just add another egg or egg white to get a better consistency for my personal taste. The crunchy Grape Nuts are wonderful with the oats. Such an unusual combo that lead to great texture.

    These cookies were wonderful! We love crunchy cookies and recipes are hard to find for crispy. I plan to modify this recipe using different add-ins.

    This is a huge hit! I changed it around a bit. I used 2 sticks of butter (not 3 and not margarine), 1/2 cup of applesauce (to make up for the butter), 1 cup of dried cherries, 1/2 cup finely chopped pecansa AND 1/2 cup white chocolate chips. FABULOUS! The grapenuts make the whole cookie heartier than a plain oatmeal. You will love these!

    Used 1/2 raisins and 1/2 chocolate chips as that was what I had. Also less white sugar.

    I love the crunch of these cookies! I had to make 4 dozen cookies for the school's cookie exchange and I had been wanting to make these for a while. I used 3 sticks of butter instead of margarine. These are truly awesome cookies.

    I have made these with butter instead of margarine. I have also added chocolate chips and substituted dried cherries for the cranberries. They are chewy and crunchy and my family loved them. we love grapenuts anyway and this is a good way to use them.
