pretty good, but a little too chewy, yet somehow dry. seemed like it needed more flour. Will try again and probably tweek some more...Will update review/notes when I do that.

These cookies are great! My husband is always asking me to make "healthy" cookies, and he absolutely loved these! Great job!

Made as described except I used 4 oz of coconut Greek yogurt instead of plain as that is what I have on hand. The cookies did not spread out in the oven so after the first batch I pressed them down before baking. I just tasted one from the first pan and I think they are a little bland even considering all the flavors that are in them. I think the recipe would benefit from a little salt (I did use unsalted butter as I do for all baking). DH, who I really made them for, didn't like them either and has taken them to work (those folks will eat anything!). Sorry but I won't be making these again.

I'm so glad for these people that are health conscious! I changed a lot with this recipe, and I'm giving it 5 stars based on what I did with it. So here goes. 1) Use Greek yogurt. Much better for you, and makes the cookies moist and rich. 2) Use wheat flour. No reason to use white flour (which is as bad - or worse - for you as sugar is). With oatmeal cookies, you won't be able to tell a difference. Well, only slightly. ;) 3) Add 1 teaspoon cinnamon and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Which brings up another point: use unsalted butter. :) 4)Toast your nuts before-hand. I toast mine in a 350 degree oven for 5-10 minutes. That will bring out all of the nut's crunchiness and nuttiness and flavor. I used pecans. You can use any kind of nut you want! 5) Roughly chop the pecans and cranberries before adding them to the batter. I love the addition of the carrots! That is pure ingeniousness. 6) My cookies needed much longer to cook. 7) A neat addition to these cookies is peanut butter. That's up to you. Thanks for sharing this recipe, "MakeItHealthy"!

If you like chewy healthy cookies, you might like these. If you're using unsalted butter, I suggest you add a little salt. It's a little bland.

This cookie is amazing! I followed the changes suggested by Mary Elizabeth. I also added an extra teaspoon of vanilla and dark chocolate chips.
