    Preparation:15min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:25min 

    1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C.
    2. In a medium size mixing bowl sift together flour, bicarb soda, salt and baking powder.
    3. In a large mixing bowl cream butter, white and brown sugars together until light and fluffy. Dribble vanilla into the creamed mixture. Beat the eggs, one at a time, into the mixture. Add the sifted ingredients to the creamed mixture. Beat until well mixed.
    4. Pour chocolate chips, wheatgerm and oats into the mixture; fold into dough until well combined. Drop the dough by rounded teaspoonful onto an ungreased baking tray.
    5. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until the edges are just slightly brown. The biscuits will look undercooked but that is the correct consistency. Cool on a wire rack.

    These taste great. They are flat cookies - surprisingly flat. I made my first batch too large, and they did start to fall apart. When I used my small cookie scoop the result was much better. The oats give these a great texture.  -  21 Oct 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    They taste wonderful, but the recipe calls for WAY too many chocolate chips. Instead of 4 cups, we used 2 cups. Still too many. Next time we will use only 1 cup (1/4 of what recipe calls for.) Seems like it could benefit from a tiny bit more flour too, since they had trouble staying together. Regardless, they really taste GOOD, and I'm sure we'll cook them again!  -  06 Mar 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
