"These cookies received rave reviews from my husband's friends, who dropped by as the cookies were coming out of the oven. They loved the spices. I made a few tweaks to the recipe. I used freshly ground soft white wheat for the flour. I, also, used a whole egg instead of the white. Because I live at 7,800 ft., I used 1/4 cup shortening and 1/2 cup butter, instead of margarine. Next time, I plan to add nuts. Walnuts, pecans or even sunflower seeds would be great."


3/4 c Margarine; softened
1/2 c Brown Sugar; packed
1 c Rolled oats
1 Egg white; whipped

1 1/2 c Unbleached flour
1/2 ts Nutmeg

1/4 ts Salt
1 ts Vanilla

It has its pros and cons. I added peanut butter and chocolate chips which was good. Very soft cake-like cookie. Something seemed to be missing though. Can't put my finger on it, all in all good recipe.

I substituted applesauce for the fat... The result was an excellent cake-like cookie with fewer calories.

Yum! It was a rainy day and we had some over ripe bananas - so made this with my 3 year old. They are a huge hit! Added some dates and sultanas we had in the cupboard which was nice :))

Fab, will make again, better a lots of small cookies rather than fewer large ones.

I think these are simple and great! I amped up the vanilla and cinnamon (because I always do) and used one banana and half a cup of applesauce. These are wonderfully addictive!

I'm sorry but I thought these were not good at all. No one in my family liked them. I ended up throwing them away. What a shame they sounded really good.
