Tammy's Review: 

This is an excellent cookie recipe! It's very tasty, and makes beautiful dough and cookies. I would not have been able to tell that it had whole wheat flour in it instead of white. It's very good!! :)

My rating: 9/10. Excellent recipe, I just don't know if I like quite so many flavors all in one cookie. The recipe is staying in my recipe box though!! :)

Made healthier substitutions with great results!

Made these last night for a sweet treat.....They are super yummy!! I substituted ground flax seed for half the butter and only used 1 1/4 cup of organic sugar (instead of the two types of sugar). I'll probably decrease the sugar even more next time. I also used whole oats instead of quick oats. This recipe made 42 cookies. I baked 14 and froze the rest to bake later.

Soft & Chewy

My daughter helped me make these the other day and we baked up 2 dozen but ended baking them too long so I wasn't a great fan of them. But we had about 4 dozen that rolled (from the same recipe!) that we froze and today we just pulled 2 dozen out and baked them again... this time taking them out before they were too crispy and they were delicious!
We did take the advice of other commentors and left out the chocolate chips (not to mention we were very low on them), and they were great without them. May try them with both peanut butter and chocolate chips or just chocolate chips next time. I really love that they are made with whole wheat flour!

Doesn't taste like whole wheat!

These are very good and you'd never guess there isn't any white flour! Made a nice big batch. Next time, I will cook them for a shorter time (I did 12 - 13 minutes) so they stay softer for several days. Yummy and marginally healthy!

Thumbs up on this one

Really good cookie made with whole wheat flour. Although I am like Tammy, there is a lot of flavors going on in the one. I think I will try it without the choc chips next time and then after that will try them with the chip, but no peanut butter. See which way is best. It is nice to find a good cookie using whole wheat flour and oats

Yummy treat!

I love it that this cookie has whole grains in it! I'm always looking for ways to take white flours out and put in healthier ingredients. I made mine using all-natural peanut butter and it worked wonderfully. We handed them out to our neighbors on a cold and snowy night.
