1 1/2 cups
packed brown sugar
smooth peanut butter
1 1/2 teaspoons
1 1/2 cups
whole wheat flour
toasted wheat germ
1 1/2 teaspoons
semisweet chocolate chips
these were so hearty and good. I cut the recipe in half and made smaller cookies i got about 28 and cooked them for 15 minutes. These are perfect for hiking or just snacking. The second time i made them i also did half applesauce and half butter and used all whole wheat flour. They still came out amazing.
Delicious if you like oatmeal raisin cookies. I read the reviews but decided not to change a thing just to try the recipe as it was intended. The brown sugar is way, way too much. That is all I can taste, defenantly do away with it unless you want to eat oatmeal raisin cookiies and ther are much easier recipes for oatmeal rasin cookies. Next time I will use all whole weat, cut the sugar in half, and leave out raisins, and add more nutty items like sunflower seeds etc. by the way hubby loves them. He would give them 5 stars. I only give them three because I expected to taste more than sugar.
OH...YUM!!! These are BY FAR the best "health" / "trail mix" cookie I have tasted. I have been searching a long time for a recipe that will make me never want to buy bars again, and this one has blown me away. I couldn't stop eating the dough, haha! I used all spelt flour (LOVE the taste of it and it's so healthy!) and only half the amount of molasses because I ran out. The flavors are so complimentary to eachother. I tried lots of add-ins like chocolate chips, craisins, walnuts, pecans, golden raisins... YUM! Also, to 1/4 of the batch I added 1 small banana with walnuts. MMMM it tastes like REALLY GOOD flavorful banana bread!!! Thanks so much for a recipe that will be a forever favorite :)
I cut the sugar to 1 cup, used crunchy PB, 1/2 cup pure mini chocolate chips, 1/2 cup walnut, 1/4 cup sunflower, 1/4 cup sesame seeds & 1/4 cup coconut.
Next time I would like to try 1/2 butter 1/2 apple sauce ;)
These are very dense - but delicious - cookies. I've made them several times and recently used mini-kisses instead of chocolate chips for a more intense chocolate flavor. I've also used crunchy peanut butter rather than smooth, both milk and semi-sweet chocolate. They're very easy to modify and still taste great!
I omitted the raisins, chocolate chips, and nuts for a lower-calorie result, and they were wonderful!!! Very filling, soft, and wholesome. I will make this again and never buy granola bars from the store!
I used all whole wheat flour, cut the chocolate chips down to 1/4 cup (to save calories), and used 1/2 banana instead of applesauce (since I didn't have applesauce). YUM! Tasted like a little banana bread cookie. Be sure to flatten them--otherwise, they stay little balls when they cook.
These are great! You can change them to your liking, and they still turn out fine. I always do something different, usually using organic crunchy pb, unsweetened carob chips, mix in some ground flax, only 3/4 cup sugar, and 1/2 cup butter 1/2 cup applesauce. These are excellent for breakfast or on a hike!
