I really wanted to like this recipe, but I think using oil instead of butter ruined them for me. I had never used oil for a cookie and I thought I'd give it a try, but you can really taste the difference, and the was greasy. I think because of this I had a problem with the chocolate chips sticking in the dough. They also just seemed to crumble when they came out of the oven :/ If I decide to try them again I'll definitely be using butter or at least half butter half oil.

Halved the recipe and replaced all the oil with unsweetened applesauce, using 1/2 cup semi-sweet choc chips and 1/2 a cup coconut, also used 1/4 cup Eggbeaters for the egg. Needed almost 15 mins and got 11 medium sized cookies. Chewy good texture, but oddly needed something else because it didn't taste very sweet even with the stated sugar. Easy and quick to make, thanks for sharing! :)

Believe me these cookies were amazing, I added some chopped Almonds and walnuts to make it more healthier.And to make it a bit crunchy I cooked it for 12-15 min. My kids loved them and I found a new way to give them oatmeal.

This was an awesome recipe I am sure to make again. The cookies were very chewy on the inside and crunchy on the outside. I did not have oil, so used only butter. I also split the batter into 4 portions and baked one bar (rather than individual cookies) each night in my toaster oven. The kids loved having fresh baked cookies every night. Outstanding recipe!

Very good cookies. Have a problem keeping any in the kitchen as they are eaten up fast. I double the recipe, add 2 cups of coconut and mix and match with milk chocolate, semi-sweet chocolate and peanut butter chips. YUMM! A great gift cookie too.

These cookies were good but I found the dough very greasy. i think next time i would use half oil and half butter instead. The coconut and chocolate chips made these oatmeal cookies extra special thanks for sharing!

This was a really good cookie. It was chewy and moist with crispy edges, perfect cookie texture in my book. I substituted a 1/2 cup butter and 1/2 cup oil instead of 1 cup oil, I think butter gives a much better flavor. I liked the mixture of the coconut and oatmeal, however I didn't think the coconut taste really stood out and I even added 1 cup coconut. In general I loved theses cookies and I will make again.
