My Grandma Lola used to make these cookies every time we would visit. They are even good the second day. Just pop them in the microwave for 30 seconds!!

  • In a medium size mixing bowl sift together flour, baking soda, salt and baking powder.

  • In a large mixing bowl cream butter, white and brown sugars together until light and fluffy. Dribble vanilla into the creamed mixture. Beat the eggs, one at a time, into the mixture. Add the sifted ingredients to the creamed mixture. Beat until well mixed.

  • Pour chocolate chips, wheat germ and oats into the mixture; fold into dough until well combined. Drop the dough by rounded teaspoonful onto an ungreased cookie sheet.

  • Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until the edges are just slightly brown. The cookies will look undercooked but that is the correct consistency. Cool on a wire rack.

These taste great. They are flat cookies - surprisingly flat. I made my first batch too large and they did start to fall apart. When I used my small cookie scoop the result was much better. The oats give these a great texture. Read More

They taste wonderful but the recipe calls for WAY too many chocolate chips. Instead of 4 cups we used 2 cups. Still too many. Next time we will use only 1 cup (1/4 of what recipe calls for.) Seems like it could benefit from a tiny bit more flour too since they had trouble staying together. Regardless they really taste GOOD and I'm sure we'll cook them again! Read More
