SO HOW'D IT GO?

"Good for you" is, of course, a subjective description, but eggs and oil seem really out of place in there.

and the 2 cups of sugar....

This didn't work for me, at all.  When made per the recipe batter was bone dry.  I had to add a lot of liquids (soymilk, water, and a bit more oil) to correct it, and the resulting cookies were barely passable.  I'm not going to try these again, but if I had to do it over I would have started with half the flour.

I loved these!  I used vinegar because I didn't have ener-g egg or ground flax seed and I added soy milk to soften dough.  I made some straight oatmeal and then some with raisins, walnuts and coconut.  Even my dad who has an aversion to vegan foods and anything with whole wheat flour gobbled them up.  thanks so much!

My dough was really really unusuable dry, so I added probably 1/4 cup of water which made it a lot better.  They didn't look scrumptious but tasted pretty good.

These were really good, but once I put the dry and wet ingredients together, my dough was really really dry. I added some soymilk and it was a little better, but still kind of dry. I also added some cinnamon, 1/2 tsp, but I would add more the next time I made them because I couldn't even taste it. Overall, they still taste really good!  ;D

I must say, when I bit into these cookies i almost died!  Best cookies ever!!

I'm not sure if they are 100% healthy, but they are too tasty for me to care.  My friend made these for me, and she didn't even use a a commercial egg replacer, just vinegar.  How versatile!!!

Thanks so much for posting the recipe
