  1. Yum! 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
  2. 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 - Read more ...
  3. Good but I used whole wheat flour and they came out burned at 15 minutes. Better at 10-12 minutes
  4. They seemed a bit bland at first so I added some chocolate chips and it helped a lot. They were super greasy but didn't spread out too much they we quite pretty cookies. I used chunky peanut butter for crunch but next time I might add something else for a kick... almond butter perhaps. Everyone - Read more ...

  8. 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!
  9. A wonderful way to increase your daily fiber intake! I used less sugars but added more bran just to cut calories. They turn out pretty chewy with just a hint of sweetness which is perfect for my whole family! I'm trying my next batch with chocolate chips - can't wait!
  10. 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
