These cookies were delicious. I have been cooking up a storm for the last month trying to test recipes to start my own business and last night after trying these cookies, my husband said these were the best yet! As we are not vegans, I did use non-vegan items. It worked fine but they did cook a little faster than the original recipe.

Excellent easy recipe - I made w/out coconut and it was still good. Also, substituted oat flour for the oat meal and it worked just fine.

These are great! Different than what we have been making. I made them non-vegan and I think what Robin W says, that they cooked a little faster, is true? So, 12 mins was prob. fine... next time! Thanks!

I just finished making these cookies and they are super yummy. I, like most others it seems, used butter and eggs I also made them with only 3/4 the butter called for and 1/2 a cup of creamy peanut butter and it makes them so tasty and the consistency is really great too. Mine did yield about 40 cookies rather than the 24 so that's something to keep in mind.

5 from the crew - these are smashing. do chill the dough, they come out perfectly. did not use walnuts as i was out, and used maple flavoring in place of vanilla. everything else exactly as written. took 12 minutes. awesome and will definitely go in the forever file. thanks!

I made these cookies after my christmas fudge fell threw && they were a hit!! Unfortunately I didnt have chocolate chips...I had left over bakers chocolate squares so I chopped them up && added some white chocolate chips to it as well. It is my new favorite cookie recipe && will be using this from now on out. Thanks!!

the texture of these cookies was great. My husband said they were a bit bland, but that could be because I usually use 1/2 cup peanut oil for the 1 cup butter. Maybe next time I will try making them with butter so they have more flavor. I used real eggs and 3/4 cup oatmeal to 2 cups flour. Overall a good recipe.

After reading such rave reviews, I was pretty disappointed with these cookies. As others have noted, 14 minutes left them very dry. No ingredient stood out among the medley of oatmeal, chocolate chips, walnuts, and coconut, so they ended up tasting sort of nothing flavored. All in all, you'd do just as well to follow the recipe off the chocolate chip package using vegan substitutes.

These cookies are great! I used butter and eggs, but only 3/4 cup sugar and substituted raisins for walnuts. They were just sweet enough and I will make them again and again. Thanks for sharing.
