This is very similar to another recipe Ive rated on here, still a five star one at that. These are delicious! Love the chewy texture and the mix of chocolate chips and oats.

I made a batch of these over the weekend and they practically "flew" out of the cookie jar. In a hurry, I forgot to check that I had enough of all the ingredients--I didn't! So I ended up using 1 cup of muesli for the second cup of oatmeal. It worked just fine -- perhaps added a bit more fiber! Thanks for posting this recipe!

I love oatmeal cookies but had never tried them with chocolate chips. These were so yummy and very easy. I think I like these better than those with raisins in them. Soft and chewy, just the way we like them. Thanks :)
