    five star cookie recipe. but be warned; these are the type of cookie you cannot stop eating; the texture and taste are great. i did have to make a few changes; first i changed it to make 21 cookies and the recipe worked out fine. (i didnt want to have lots of cookies lying around in case they turned out great; good thing i thought ahead!) and i didnt have any fresh brown sugar so had to use sugar in the raw. i opted to leave out the additional white sugar and i used organic bulk oats so i dont know if they were quick cooking or not. they were very easy to put together and the taste was super even without the white sugar. i found them definitly sweet enough. the texture was nice; chewy and soft but the texture of the oats was detectable which made it have some substance. i used a chopped up organic dark chocolate candy bar instead of the chips per my daughters request. they were excellent and will make them again. thanks for sharing.

    My sister made these and said they were awesome so I decided to try them too. BEST. DECISION. EVER. These were gobbled down by my kids and I within 10 mins of taking them out. I halved the recipe and got 20 cookies. I also subbed the chocolate chips for raisins and half the plain flour with whole wheat flour. I have a fan forced oven so I lowered the temp to 50°c and baked for 14 minutes. My sister told me they wouldn't look done when you take them out but when they cool, they'll harden. This is going to be a favorite recipe around here!!

    Absolutely awesome! I never use quick cooking oats so I just poured milk over my steelcut oats enough to slightly moisten and let them sit 15 min before using. Also omitted walnuts for family preferences and used all demerara brown sugar. Proportions were still right. I was also out of baking soda and used nearly 1 tbsp baking powder. This will be my go-to chocolate chip cookie forever. Thanks for the recipe!!

    My roommate wanted oatmeal chocolate chip cookies. Anything I've made from this site has been AMAZING!! Both he and his Dad loved these cookies. I did add just 2 1/2 cups of oats. 13 minutes is spot on for the bake time! Thanks so much for a simple tasty cookie recipe. I'll definitely be making these again!

    This cookie is great! Me and the whole family loved than. Highly recommended! But next time if I made them again, I would use 1/4 less oats.

    I subbed the chocolate chips with raisins and half the plain flour with whole wheat flour. Next time I'll try adding some shredded coconut.

    I made these as 'healthy' as possible, omitting all refined sugar and flour. I subbed sucanat for the brown sugar (didn't bother to use/sub the white sugar), oat flour for the all purpose and 63% cocoa chocolate bar chopped instead of the chips. They were great and worked very well with the substitutions for those wanting a healthier alternative.

    Like another reviewer I also added raisins instead of walnuts. The cookies were easy to make and I got 40 cookies, they baked for 15 minutes. Both the chocolate chips and the raisins sort of disappeared, no taste of either in the finished cookie which was very crumbly and stayed that way. <br/>We liked them but I have had better, therefore three stars.<br/>Thanks for posting.
