Healthy Oatmeal Cookies

Pull a fast one on the kids: In just 10 minutes, whip up the dough for these sweet, crunchy treats made with whole-wheat flour. Many recipes for baked goods can be tweaked to use equal parts whole-wheat and all-purpose flours, without losing flavor or texture.

    First time I made this recipe and made some adjustments. since I don't have brown sugar on stock used half white sugar and half honey. I love it and would like to try again again. Thank you Martha Stewart for this easy but tasty cookies.

    This worked very well for me I used 1 cup whole wheat flour and not all-purpose flour whole-wheat flour mix. I was wondering if I want to replace dark-brown sugar with honey, how much honey should I use?

    Well, used Almond Flour and Whole grain wheat flour, added chopped walnuts and a little maple syrup. Used organic raw sugar. I would not use less sugar as someone suggested. They are not too sweet at all. I didn't think they were all that good as I ate six of them! LOL Good thing they are just a 'nice' cookie. I might have eaten twelve!!

    I used only all-purpose flour, added one more egg and the cookies turned out awesome! however, I would recommend using much less sugar ;)

    I didn't have ww flour so added about 1/4 cup bran to 3/4 white, with a few Tablespoons of processed flax (to fill up the 1 cup measurement. I also added 1/4 cup peanut butter and 1/3 cup peanut butter chips and 1/4 tsp. salt. I only had quick cooking oatmeal so used that, lightly oiled a baking sheet and they baked perfectly at 350 for 12 minutes. They are delicious warm but don't know if they will last so I can taste them cooled off!! haha :) Cream that oil, sugar and egg well, until fluffy!

    Great! I love these cookies. I changed the recipe a bit though. I only used whole wheat flour and I threw in cinnamon chips. Delicious.

    I omitted the all-purpose flour in this recipe because my mother doesn't like it, and raisins because no one likes them (oops!), and so I made instead plain oatmeal cookies.... they turned out MARVELOUS! My dad, a diabetic, insisted on having two at once (!!!), and my mother was a fan of how wonderful their texture was. Definitely recommend!

    I make this cookies every week! They are great for a mid morning/afternoon snack. I always replace sugar or brown sugar with panela (unrefined whole cane sugar) and instead of only raisins I add a whole cup of a nut mix (made by me) with caj├║, sunflower seeds, quinoa (boiled first around 20 minutes), raisins, chestnuts or sesame seeds. It's like a natural homemade energy bar (my nutritionist totally approves this recipe) because it's also made with only whole wheat. Hope you have some fun! :)
