Trail Mix Oat Cookies

Trail Mix Oat Cookies created by MathMom.calif

These are made with part butter (or margarine) and part oil. Packed with oat bran and wheat germ, they taste good too! I reduced some of the add ins as suggested by reviewers.

    I scaled this recipe down by half and it worked out great. Even my bf who is a cookie puriest (only plain chocolate chips for him) enjoyed this. These really are a mouth full tho. Extremly filling cookies, but they did seem a little oily or something. Also there were way too much chips and peanuts and seeds. The dough just couldnt take all of the extras. Next time I'll use less of each and maybe do all butter to see if that makes a diffrence since I used margarine and oil. They also took a bit longer to cook, but that could just be the size that I made them.

    these were very fiberous and healthy (well i subbed the butter for prune butter and cut the oil down) so they were very low fat and so good for you too. i also omitted the chocolate but put a few reeses in a couple of them. (chocolate haters live with me) and i subbed the chopped peanuts with pepitas.. so i changed it up a bit but they are still a good healthy hippie type cookie with lots of fiber and thats what we like sooo. thanks.

    Sadly, these didn't turn out at ALL for us. We didn't care for the flavor, but they were also impossible to cook - either under or over done. There seemed to be no middle ground.
