For someone who's never baked cookies before, these came out pretty yummy. I modified the recipe based on the other reviews that stated these were not sweet enough and too bland.
I used 3 1/2 cups Quaker rolled oats, 1 1/4 cups of sugar, 1/3 cup raisins and the rest chopped walnuts, and a generous spoonful of the spices. (The same amount the recipe calls for, just a tad bit more) The batter came out grainy and loose so I hand molded them into the baking dish instead of spooning.
Well, like I said, I've never baked cookies before so I didn't know how to shape them. My cookies came out HUGE. They don't spread that much, so the way they went into the oven is basically the same way they came out :/ I got about 15 cookies instead of the 48 the recipe calls for. I'm just lucky that the first (and only) batch came out great I guess. I baked them for about 16 minutes. They looked a little strange coming out of the oven but I guess that was my fault.
I was surprised that they tasted delicious. Not oily at all like some reviewers said. Crispy around the edges. Not chewy, but crumbly and soft on the inside. My husband doesn't care about texture or appearance... as long as it tastes good. He loved them and loved that they were healthy but they were a little sweet. (I thought the sweetness was perfect but the cinnamon was a bit strong)
I'll be making this again whenever we have a cookie craving.
