this never became bubbly, but it is very good. I used butter and just walnuts (which I toasted briefly when the pan of oatmeal base came out of the oven). More of a confection than a cookie. Like oatmeal brittle.
- 4 1⁄2 cups oatmeal
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 3⁄4 cup margarine or 3⁄4 cup butter, melted
- 1⁄2 cup corn syrup
- 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt (I use less usually)
- 2 cups chocolate chips (semi-sweet)
- 2⁄3 cup toasted chopped mixed nuts (w/o peanuts) (optional)
