"There are enough oats in these cookies that they feel almost healthy (well, as healthy as cookies can be!), but enough chocolate chunks to make them feel like a real treat."—Jennifer B.
Wendy's Biscoff Oatmeal Toffee Crunch Cookies
Wendy's Biscoff Oatmeal Toffee Crunch Cookies
"This oatmeal cookie has a crunchy edge and a chewy center. Chewy cookies are great for care packages because they maintain a fresh taste and texture longer. The toffee bits add crunch as well as flavor. However, for anyone dealing with tree nut allergies, it is important to know that Heath Bar baking bits contain almonds. You can leave out the toffee and this cookie will still be delicious. If you have a little extra time and a candy thermometer, you can easily make your own nut free toffee. I included a toffee recipe with this cookie recipe."—Wendy.

"The trick to making these cookies the perfect texture is to let them cool on newspaper - it absorbs some of the cooking oil to make them an awesome combination of chewy and crunchy. And chocolate chips are clearly better than raisins in an oatmeal cookie."—Meg M.

"These oatmeal cookies include a few other ingredient—rice krispies, coconut, and butterscotch morsels— which make them a departure from regular oatmeal ones. Slightly underbake (golden brown only around edges) if you prefer them softer and chewier."—Rebecca E.

Robyn's Oatmeal Flame Raisin Cookies
Robyn's Oatmeal Flame Raisin Cookies
"I wanted to make a "healthy" oatmeal cookie. So I thought it would be a good idea to start with ingredients that are in trail mix or granola; whole grains, dried fruits, nuts and seeds. Of course you need the sugar element and the fat element and the flour element, but those elements are just where your cookie goes from healthy snack to snack attack. So I subbed coconut oil for butter, barley malt syrup for most of the sugar and fermented some of the flour with sourdough starter. But once I found Flame raisins at the health food store they became the reason d'etre for the whole shebang. Flame raisins are bigger, sweeter and juicer than any other raisins I have ever tasted, and I'm a big fan of raisins, especially in oatmeal cookies. There's a healthy dose of them in these oatmeal cookies, along with other healthy ingredients like sunflower seeds, goji berries and dark chocolate chips."—Robyn F.
