Even my neighbor's child licked his lips and asked me for more days afterwards. I took the advice of others and added 1/2 c milk, 1 tsp of cinnamon, 1 tsp kosher salt. Also put walnuts, raisins and choc chips. The 2nd time I added diced almond slivers, diced prunes, diced apricots and choc chips...to total 1 cup of all of the 'extras'. Used only 1/3 c white sugar the 2nd time 'cause I thought it was a little too sweet for my boys the first time ;) (haven't tried batch #2 yet)
I've already made these outstanding cookies twice! The first time I made them just as stated (with butter), the second time I added 1/2 tsp. of salt to enhance the flavor (and boy it sure did) and another 1/2 cup of chocolate chips. Not only do the cookies taste great, but, they are sooooo filling. The whole grains really keep you from being hungry all day (yes, my DH had them for breakfast one day...he said he had to eat his "oatmeal"). We now have a healthier cookie to enjoy. Thanks for sharing!
Chewy oatmeal cookie with a burst of chocolate chip. Healthy and tasty too! I used Ghirardelli chocolate chips, 1/2 cup butter and 1/4 cup Crisco vegetable shortening. They baked for about 12 min as I did not hear the timer go off. Oatmeal part is a bit dry but the chocolate makes up for that. these go great with milk.
These turned out very well! I only changed a few things, I added a little cinnamon, a bit of salt and a splash of milk. They turned out awesome.
I liked the recipe; but you NEED to add some salt. The Nestle Toll House Chocolate Chip recipe calls for 1 TSP of salt. I couldn't pinpoint what was off on these cookied and it was indeed the salt.
Tasted great, esp. for cookies made of only whole wheat flour. I added peanut butter and walnuts for some extra flavoring. Also, I added a half cup of milk to keep the batter from going dry.
Loved these! Made exactly as stated using whole wheat pastry flour. Together with the rolled oats, this made a yummy lunchbox treat and additional source of whole grains for the kids. Mine loved them! My picky husband who eschews all things whole grain certainly ate a bunch, too. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
I was kind of disappointed. Were these suppose to spread? If so, mine didn't. I followed the recipe as written, and ended up with 60 cookies. I thought maybe I had read the instruction wrong, and was suppose to use a tablespoon of dough for each cookie, but the instructions clearly states 'teaspoon'. The first batch I squashed while still warm, as they were almost the same sized 'balls' as I had put on the cookie sheet. The following batches, I pressed before baking. Not what I was expecting I guess. The flavour was just okay. I'd follow the advise of another and add some cinnamon and nutmeg, but I won't be making these again. Sorry :(
These were very good. I was afraid to put in all the whole wheat flour so I substituted 1/2 cup with all purpose (next time I won't do this). I also used 1/2 cup of butter with 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce and I added 1/4 cup white chocolate chips (I was looking for a chocolate fix). These definitely hit the spot.
I made it just like the recipe stated. Very good! Makes a crunchy cookie. I could NOT tell that this had whole wheat flour in it. I would not have believed it lest I made it myself. Thanks, this is a keeper!
