READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by TexanMorgan

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!

Top Review by Sydney Mike

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]
