    HokiesMom's Note:

    These make a crispy cookie and are quick to throw together on those spur of the moment cravings or when a family member says "oh by the way I'm supposed to bring a couple dozen cookies to school/work today". This makes 2 dozen cookies. Great for beginning cooks! **Updated 3/5/2010 based on the first reviews I've adjusted the name and the ingredient list to add the the option of a 6th ingredient of using chocolate chips to the mix.

      Drop by tablespoonfuls about 2 inches apart onto GREASED baking sheets. Flatten slightly (if you skip this you get mounds as they do not spread much).

      A very yummy cookie recipe!!!!
      The dough was thick and easy to work with and the cookies came out chunky, chewy and very tasty! I luved the peanut butter flavour with the hearty oats and chocolate chips. Mmmm!
      I used an organic all natural (no sugar added) peanut butter and a milk chocolate. Reduced the sugar to 1/4 cup and found they were perfectly sweet like that.
      I made very big cookies endind up with 11 from the full recipe, which I had to bake for 11 minutes.
      THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing such an easy and yummy recipe with us, Hokies!

      At first I didn't think these were that great, but I took them to playgroup and everyone raved about them. Thanks for a quick and easy snack recipe! I too added the chocolate chips and think they should be a required 6th ingredient.

      Hokies, these are delicious and very fast to put together, which makes them a new favourite for me! I also like that they're not overly sweet, they're just perfect. For the optional chips, I used 1/4 cup peanut butter chips, and 1/4 cup white chocolate chips, which worked out perfect for this non-chocolate eater (maybe a little too fine, as I'm going to have to get them out of the house - and quick!!) Fantastic recipe - thanks for sharing it! Made for Zaar Stars Tag.
