I used coconut oil instead of the canola. Gave it the slightest hint of coconut flavor. Delicious!

Quick, easy

dont even taste healthy! i love these little cookies, in fact i'm having a hard time stoping at 1. adding the flax and almond butter adds more of a health benifit to these tastey things. also try adding 1/4tsp baking powder to really send nestle tollhouse a run for their money!!

better than my fav nestle recipe
Made some changes

I added:
1/4 c ground flax seeds
did not use all whole wheat, I used 1/4 c whole wheat and 3/4 cup unbleached all purpose flour
1/2 cup of butter and 1/4 cup almond butter
and 1/4 cup of honey in addition to the sugars
did not use any canola oil either

great start for a healthy chocolate chip cookie

So you criticize the recipe,

So you criticize the recipe, even though you didn't follow it? Some people just shouldn't write reviews.

Possibly Addictive

I followed the recipe but also added 1/4 cup ground flaxseed and 1/4 cup of chopped pecans. I will definitely be making these again!

These cookies are wonderful!
could be better

I used Agave Nectar instead of the sugar and they aren't worth the calories to eat. Maybe they would be better with real sugar but I wouldn't serve these to anyone. I won't recommend this recipe to anyone

I agree, added a titch more

I agree, added a titch more sea salt and careful not to grind the oats too fine. My 2 year old helped make the entire recipe and my 6 year old liked them so much he stated, "Mom you should be a baker!" They're the toughest critics. Pretty great recipe. Used canola oil as listed.
