Yes, these cookies are really good, however, I have revised mine a bit so my family will get some nutrition as well as it being yummy, these seem to add more flavor:

I add cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla, bran, raisins, organic choco chips, and raw crushed almonds.
(I just guess at the additions and they always turn out well)
