I changed this recipe up a little bit also; used egg substitute instead of the large egg, reduced granulated sugar by about 2 tablespoons, only used 3/4 cup of chocolate chips, and added 2 tablespoons of toasted flax seeds, 1/4 cup each of cranberries and dried, chopped dates. The seeds added a slightly nutty flavor and the cranberries added a little tartness. The cookies were very "well-received" by my husband and teenagers!

Just want to tell you these are the best cookies - my whole family loves them. I use "Hersey's" Dark chocolate chips and 1/2 cup chopped walnuts in the recipe and I can't keep them in the house. Of course I share them with others! Thanks for this wonderful recipe.

OMG these cookies are fantasic. Followed the recipe exactly but added 3/4-1 cup chopped pecans and used Hershey's peanut butter and milk chocolate chips.Cooked about 13-14 minutes. I'm making another batch today. My new favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe. Best one I've made.

I absolutely love this cookie recipe!! It is my family's favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe. My kids love them. And I like it because it's healthier. I use a mix of whole grain flours - whole wheat, spelt, quinoa, ground flax, almond meal, soy flour (I keep a big container with a mix of flours that I use for baking). I use oat bran instead of the oatmeal, or if I do use oatmeal, I don't grind it, I just throw it in. I use Earth Balance spread for the butter. Sometimes I add chopped walnuts, which is really yummy, but I have to grind them up to hide them from the kids. Adding ground walnuts makes the cookies even moister. This is a great chocolate chip cookie recipe!
