  1. These are really good, but I think I'll modify them next time. Based on the reviews I reduced the amount of oats to about 1 2/3 cups. I wouldn't say the cookies are dry. They're moist, but the texture is a little....chalky. I think it could be because I used natural peanut butter (i.e. just peanuts and salt). Maybe next time I would try adding a little milk, or a little more butter and/or less flour, and not reducing the oats quite so much because I do like the chewiness. I also used semisweet chips, which I think go great with PB.
  2. Yummy! Based on the reviews that thought the dough was dry, I cut back the rolled oats to about 2 cups and it worked fine. I chopped up some chocolate bunnies leftover from Easter that I found in the fridge and used that instead of chocolate chips. I think toffee chips would work great in this dough, too.
  3. Very good! Added 1 Tbsp milk to the dough based on a few other reviews saying the cookies were a little dry. The cookies turned out perfect. We took them camping and they help up well to getting packed around. Used 1 1/2 cups chocolate pieces and 1/2 cup cocktail peanuts. Will definitely make again. For me this recipe made ~75 cookies.
  4. My family said they liked them but I wasn't overly impressed. They're good but I felt that they were a little dry. Next time I think I would cut back on the oats a bit. Thanks! Made for Fall PAC 2009

  1. This is a very good cookie recipe! I made these yesterday for a "dry run" for a Super Bowl party and took them to work for review. Personally, I like crisp cookies so I baked them longer than the stated time (more like 12-14 minutes). Instead of using all milk chocolate chips, I used mostly plain M&Ms with about 1/3 cup of milk chocolate chips. Everyone loved these cookies because there is something for everyone in them. They passed the test so I will make these cookies again and will use blue and orange M&Ms in place of some of the chocolate chips. I might get a little crazy and even add a handful of chopped peanuts too. Thank you for posting this recipe!
