    Do I need to adjust the microwaving time if doubling the recipe?

    OMG!! These were SUPER EASY! I followed the directions to the “t” EXCEPT .....I used real butter (I NEVER USE MARGARINE) and...I put my butter in after I finished the cooking part! I made small cookies by using my coffee scoop! ??. That way they won’t be wasted! ??

    I have made these for years with the stovetop version and my kids loved them. I prefer them withouth the peanut butter and either chopped nuts or coconut added. They disappear real fast. Thanks for the updated recipe.

    I used real Butter instead of Margarine and Chunky Peanut Butter. Perfect! Thanks for sharing!

    My aunt taught me to make the non-microwave version of these when I was young and I loved them. Now my 10 year old daughter makes these all by herself in the microwave and they turn out perfect! Great recipe!!

    My mom used to make these for me and my husband's mom made them for him, we are excited because these are our favorites! It's so easy and quick, thanks for the recipe. I lower the peanut butter and oats just a little. I also like to add raisins (my favorite) or coconut (my husband's favorite).

    I’m not that big on chocolate and peanut butter. Swapped those out for ground flax meal and almond butter. Then I only had 2 cups of oatmeal, so added about 2 cups of shredded coconut to make up fo it. Added them both dry with the oatmeal. Coconut isn’t as absorbent as oatmeal. I also used a lesser amount of almond extract In place of vanilla. The liquid part seemed

    I added about a 3/4 cup more of the quick oats because I felt like it was still a little too runny and may not set up well. They ended up PERFECT! My family devoured them in one night!

    I added the peanut butter before cooking it.

    This recipe inspired me to make the same cookies but I substituted the margarine for real butter and sugar for Black Hills Butter Pecan flavored honey and then used 1 cup of quick oats didn't have peanut butter but Thank you very much for this recipe it inspires others to put their own unique take on it
