packed brown sugar
1 1/4 cups
I made mine with Smart Balance butter substitute & Egg Beaters & they were STILL great! Plus with all that natural fiber, they're so good FOR you
Cookies were delish, but the cooking time i found was too long ... burnt the first batch when I left it in for 13mins ... Try 10mins for a chewy treat! Also I replaces the wheat bran and rolled oats with special k, and got some fab results!
This recipe turned out just like I expected it to. They came out perfectly after about twelve minutes. My only complaint is the high fat content, from all the butter plus high-fat peanut butter. They don't taste too rich, but they are a little greasy. Next time I'll try halving the butter.
They do spread out very thin, so be sure to leave lots of space between them.
Good, but I used whole wheat flour and they came out burned at 15 minutes. Better at 10-12 minutes
Cooked for 12 minutes
used 1/2 cup butter
added teaspoon of salt
added chocolate chips to half - delicious both ways! The best thing is that they don't taste "healthy" just good
First off, I changed a handful of ingredients. Instead of the butter I substituted applesauce (cut down on the greasiness of the other reviews), cut the white sugar in half, used whole wheat flour, as well as wheat germ instead of bran( Its all I had on hand). they are really good, could be even better with some chocolate chips or by doubling the peanut butter. No need for the extra oils in the butter when the peanut butter holds all the oils you need. delicious.
I substituted 1/4 c. flour for cocoa powder because nothing goes together better than chocolate and peanut butter. I think these cookies are great! I generally like soft cookies, but the crunch from these is lovely. I use chunky peanut better because I like crunchy things and I think the peanuts go well with the oats.
I added a bit extra brown sugar and took out some white sugar. They came out soft. They are a solid 4 until I add raisins or chocolate chips, it adds to them just enough. I decrease the temp to about 300 and only bake them for around 12 mins to keep them chewy. Thanks a lot!
