These chocolate chip cookies are absolutely delicious! They have a rich dark taste from brown sugar, oats and dark chocolate chips.
I have tried several oatmeal chocolate chip recipes and this is by far the best. The previous reviewer must have overdone an ingredient as I did not find it too be to floury or tasteless, in fact, it was quite the opposite. The cookies were excellent and rich with flavor. I even found this recipe better than the 5 star oat/choc cookie recipe that is so popular. I think the key is the dark brown sugar, it just makes the whole cookie. Excellent cookie! I will never use another recipe again! - 21 Jul 2005 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Although I'd like to, I couldn't give this recipe the full 5 star rating, since I took the advice from some of the other reviews. Here are the small tweaks I made: - 1 full cup more rolled oats - an extra teaspoon of vanilla - half all-purpose flour and half whole wheat - half dark brown sugar and half golden - baked them for only 15 minutes They turned out awesome, soft and chewy and lots of chocolate! This recipe is a keeper! - 07 Apr 2008 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
I loved this cookie! The only thing I disagree with is the number of servings. My recipe made 24 3-inch cookies. For it to make only 15 they would have to be really big.... Also, I tried it again and replaced the 2 cups of chocolate chips with 1 cup white chocolate chips and 1 cup macadamia nut halves. Those cookies were YUMMY too!!! - 26 Feb 2003 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
