Oat Chocolate Chip Cookies

I love these oatmeal chocolate chip cookies. I made this recipe just before we showed our house. Not only did the people buy the house, but they requested the recipe. — Nancy Fridirici, Brookfield, Wisconsin

    I cut the sugar down to around 3/4 cup each for both granulated and brown sugar and added an extra teaspoon of vanilla. I thought they were still pretty sweet and will probably reduce sugars more next time.

    My daughter was craving oatmeal chocolate chip cookies so we decided to give these a try. She described them as "gooey AND crunchy"! My family was well pleased.

    While we usually like the flavor combination of oats and chocolate chips, we did not like these cookies at all. They were sickenly sweet, sticky instead of chewy, and, unlike the nice thick cookies shown in the above photo, came out as flat as pancakes. IF I try the recipe again, I will reduce the sugar and use bread flour to keep the finished cookies thick.

    These cookies are delicious. I was just looking for a chocolate chip recipe, so I didn't even use the oats. I also added a little more flour. Overall very simple and everyone loves them!

    These cookies the best!!! I have made many different types of cookies and this recipe is my favorite. I changed the sugars and used Coconut Crystals and also used whole wheat flour instead and it turned out great!!Thank you for sharing this recipe.

    By far the BEST choc chip cookie I have every made. Nice and thick and just very very good. I used all brown sugar instead of some white sugar. I will be keeping that recipe!
