While I did make a couple of changes, I'm sure that as is, these cookies are wonderful. First, I changed the recipe to make 24 cookies. Then I added about 2 T of softened/melted peanut butter as the last ingredient while omitting the raisins. I thought the batter was to die for, but then I tried a cookie. It was fluffy and moist on the inside. Perfect in my book! They remind me of my childhood fav- no bake cookies. So I guess these are Bake, No-bake cookies. Read More

I put in chocolate chips - which it definitely needed. Also I made this with whole wheat flour. Overall the greatest appeal of this recipe was that I had all the ingredients already. Pretty tastey but not a 5-star dessert:-) Thanks for the easy cookie recipe! Read More

These cookies are pretty good but slightly tasteless (it might be because i didnt use the cocoa??) I would recommend using CINAMIN it gives them true taste and dont add cocoa if you're adding cinamin!! it'll be a clash Read More

These are really good. I found they only needed to bake for 8 1/2 minutes to get the perfect texture. I omitted the raisins and added 2 bars of chopped white chocolate (Swiss and German);) ). They are so good this way. Pretty easy to make too even though I had to wear my 23-pound baby on my back in the baby backpack the whole time I made these.;) Read More

I was looking for something to make with my 3 year old twin girls. I went through the cupboard to see what I had to work with and stumbled upon this receipe. I only had 1 c of fast cooking oats and used 2 cups of coconut. My husband and children enjoyed them. I did have to cook them for 14 min's with the adjustments I made as 12 min's made them more cakelike. Read More

I thought these cookies were by far the best I have personally ever made! I make pretty ok cookies - but I added choc chips in these and they came out in perfect circles and stayed moist for 3 days! Very chewy and flavorful. Although I only had 1 1/2 c left of oatmeal they came out perfect!! Read More
