My cookies didnt spread at all on the cookie sheet. I had to actually form a cookie shape to resemble something esthetically pleasing. The taste was boring; only the chocolate chips I added give it a small perk. Also, the oil in the peanut butter prevented my chips from mixing into the batter. I doubled this recipe and I dont know what im going to do with all these cookies. I would NOT make this recipe again.

Very good. I add sunflower seeds, flax, wheat germ and raisins sometimes. My kids like this too.

These are incredible!! I was looking for an after-nap snack for my active toddler and this is perfect! She LOVES them. I wanted something healthy, filling, and with a good amount of protein since we are vegetarians. Two things; the recipe made a LOT of cookies, so make sure you have some baking time. But the good thing is that they freeze wonderfully. I would just thaw one or two out in the microwave, give her some milk and she was good till dinner!
