These are really good.  I love that the recipe calls for mostly whole wheat flour.  I was a little short on the oats, but it didn't seem to matter.  Mine came out with a soft/slightly chewy texture, which I like.  They also have a really good flavor...the batter is really tasty.


Mmmm these cookies came out really good! Eating one fresh out of the oven now  :)

I didn't have enough brown sugar so I added a bit of maple syrup instead.

Great recipe!


these are THE greatest oatmeal cookies.
all of my friends agree.
I was told that "they're the best cookies I've ever had."
I've made them twice and each time, they came out amazing.

I swapped the amounts of whole wheat and white flour (I enjoy the whole wheat taste, but I'm not certain everyone else would).
I also add nutmeg.


This recipe looks great!
I like that there is so much more WW flour and brown sugar than their white couterparts, not just half and half like a lot of recipes.
I would make these right now for my toddler but I don't have any oats.. grrrr!


What a cute name for a recipe! :) I can't wait to try these!
