I made these for a Diabetic, so I had to alter the recipe a bit. In place of the 3/4 cups white sugar, and 1/4 cup brown sugar I did the following :: 3/4 cup Organic Coconut Sugar, 1/8 cup Truvia Baking Blend and 1 Tbsp Organic Light Agave Nectar.<br/>I also let the dough cool in the fridge for about 30 minutes before I formed it into balls and cooked. They were perfect, and amazing! and thanks to the substitutes, only 19 carbs per cookie (when yielding 22 cookies like I did.)
Outstanding oatmeal cookie recipe. I only made one change-used raisins in place of cranberries. I ate one cookie when it was right out of the oven and had another one a few hours later. They seem to have a better texture and taste when you let them sit for awhile. I was out of cranberries, and plan to make them again soon and use cranberries. I lined my old aluminum cookie sheets with reusable teflon coated oven liners(alway use) and had no problem with sticking.
