    TexanMorgan's Note:

    These are the best chocolate chip cookies ever because of their unusualness. This cookie combines oats, nuts, spices, and chocolate, all for a wonderful and savory treat!

      Pretty much made these great tasties as given, but I did a coarse crushing of the corn flakes! Great combo of flavors & a very nice change from the usual chocolate chip cookies! Shared at a weekly group we attend! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Made & reviewed in I Recommend recipe tag]

      These cookies are great. Lots of flavor and great texture. I baked the cookies 12 minutes. I made half the recipe and got 48 cookies. Instead of using 3/4 cup sugar I used 1/2 cup. It's enough. I used unsweetened coconut. And instead of walnuts, I used pecans. Thanks TexanMorgan :) Made for PAC Spring 2010

      the unbaked dough of these cooking is amazing it is definately a 5 star but the baked product isnt as delicious. it is still pretty good though. the cornflakes are the best part in the dough but cooked they tend to get a bit tough to chew. the walnuts are the best part in the finished product. definately dont omit those. i cooked them for only 8-9 minutes for a softer cooled cookie. very hearty.
