So I just tried one of these.  They are OK.  A bit dense and not a lot of flavour.  About a 3.5 out of 5.  I think they need a bit more splenda maybe and I think next time I might put the oatmeal in the food processor before I add it...I will make them again as I think it is a good base recipe, but I think I may go back to the chocolate chips called for in my original recipe - it will increase the points, but I think it will be worth it.
