    Be sure to leave the biscuits on the baking tray for at least one minute after removing them from the oven. This allows them to "flatten" and firm up, also make sure you use rolled oats, not instant!

    Ingredients
    Serves: 60 

    • 250g butter, softened
    • 1 cup (220g) white sugar
    • 1 cup (185g) brown sugar
    • 2 eggs
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla essence
    • 1 1/2 cups (220g) rolled oats
    • 1 cup wheatgerm

    • 2 cups chopped pecans
    • 1 cup chopped pitted dates

    Directions
    Preparation:45min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:55min 

    1. Preheat the oven to 165 degrees C.

    Great recipe! I made some changes, but they are also delicious as-is. I reduced white sugar to 1/2 cup and they were still quite sweet (you could probably eliminate the white sugar all together if you wanted). I used 1/2 whole wheat flour and half white. I omitted the dates and added butterscotch chips. VERY TASTY!!  -  03 Jun 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)

    Excellent cookie. After reading the reviews I didn't add any white sugar at all. Turned out just right for us. I didn't have alot left in my cupboard so I used raisins in place of coconut and almonds in place of peacans. Would make again.  -  29 Apr 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)

    I would suggest trying these cookies, they sound unusual, but are very good. Firstly, the 10 min time @ 325 takes too long, so I upped temp to 375. If you use sweetened coconut flakes then use 1/4 cup less sugar overall. And half the dates and add 1/2 cup of semi sweet chocolate chips. Its a good cookie, it takes a long time to cook 60 cookies, but its well worth it!  -  18 Jul 2004  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
