    Unfortunately this recipe didn't work. There was a lot of mixture and I cooked one batch first. The cookies were very loose and a bit greasy. I added extra flour to the mixture I had left and they were much better. I would reccomend adding at least 70-100g more flour. Eventually they were quite nice.  -  27 Feb 2013


    I tried this recipe and the taste was very good but mine kept spreading and the edges were very crisp. I don't know what I did wrong. Did anyone else have this problem with this recipe?  -  08 Nov 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Neither my roommate nor myself were impressed with this recipe. I found that the cookies did not reflect the "chewy-ness" as stated in the title, lacked the normal oatmeal cookie consistency, and were quite dry.  -  02 May 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
