These were very good! They definitely stayed moist and chewy, which I also love. I used creamy peanut butter and I substituted a banana for the egg (just because it's what I had on hand).
These cookies were okay, but like Kelly R., mine came out a little dry and somewhat bland. I added some dark chocolate chunks and a bit cinnamon to the batter which helped some. I'm chewy, gooey cookie person, so these were definitely not that. I was wondering if it was the baking powder? I've never heard of that ingredient in a cookie recipe. Still, it's an easy-peasy recipe and probably one kids would like.
I'm not sure what went wrong. I followed the recipe exactly and they came out dry and crumbly. My kids loved them anyway but I was pretty disappointed.
Wonderful recipe! I did modify a few things, not because the recipe wasn't good, but just to see what it would taste like. I made a double batch! Instead of a cup of butter I used 1/2 c. butter and 1/4 c. peanut oil. I also added raisins, flax seeds, chopped walnut, and chopped almonds. In addition, I used an extra egg, extra vanilla and 1/4 c. molasses. So yummy we eat them for breakfast with freshly brewed coffee!!!!!
They were excellent! Soft, chewy, deliciousness! I skipped the baking soda and added a pinch of cinnamon and it turned out great. A big hit! I will be adding them to my recipe book. Thank you for posting!
Thank you Charlene. Great recipe.
I made a small change, I replaced the butter with unsweetened apple sauce and added a bit of bran.
I modified this recipe just a bit and it turned out magnificent. Added some dried cranberries and golden raisins, a pinch of cinnamon and I used whole oats instead of quick oats. Wonderful basic cookie recipe, thank you so much for sharing it. I will use it again.. oh yeah, I also added an extra egg. Super moist cookie. Very delicate.
I loved this cookie. Not to soft, not to crispy.
