About this recipe: Lightly spiced rolled oats are combined with other natural ingredients to create moist, tasty American-style cookies.
This doesn't taste like it's good for you! I added about 3/4c. raisins, and substituted the margarine with 1/2 c. unsweetened applesauce and used applesauce for the apples. Increased the cinnamon to a fat teaspoon, and added a pinch nutmeg,ginger, and cloves. This will be our new favorite cookie! - 06 Apr 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Taste absolutely amazing, but I had to make small changes: I added .5 C of brown sugar for extra sweetness, which I think was necessary after tasting them. I also had to add more flour after my first batch came out somewhat flat and near impossible to take off of the cookie sheet. I'd increase flour to at least 1 1/4 C. Also, a tip is leave them out of an air-tight container at least for the first night. I put mine in after they were out for about an hour, and they were somewhat pancake-like in "crispness" the next day. It didn't affect the flavour, I just prefer crispier cookies. Beyond those small changes, these were FANTASTIC, like a healthy bowl of apple cinnamon oatmeal inside a cookie. The house smelled great while they were cooking, too. - 25 Feb 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
These make great snacks for kids... wholesome ingredients and NO refined sugars. I added 1 large ripe mashed banana into the wet ingredients to increase sweetness. I also used applesauce instead of chopped apples because my boys still have problems eating things with lots of texture. I also would recommend increasing the cinnamon to one full teaspoon. Making them this way, I came out with slightly less than 4 dozen, and the cookies were somewhat cakelike. They were yummy and my toddlers ate them up! - 09 May 2003 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
