I made Bev's cookies a couple of weeks ago and they were delish. I'm trying to tame my sweet tooth and this was a great way to satisfy my craving without all the extra calories plus it's packed with fiber. Excellent recipe, will definitely be making again.

This is my new favorite recipe for chocolate chips cookies! By far the best I've had, possibly ever. I added some walnuts and thought they were perfect.
I loved these! I love oatmeal chocolate chip cookies, so I just left the oats whole instead of grounding them up, and it seemed like it did not affect the consistency of the cookie (I used the quick-cooking oats). I also added some sliced almonds to the batter, because I like nuts in my cookies, too. I couldn't believe how many chocolate chips were in each cookie! Usually, I feel skimped on chocolate chips, but every cookie had a perfect amount of chocolate chips. The cookies were not all eaten the day they were made, but I thought they tasted just as good the next day!
I followed the recipe exactly...except I forgot to add the oil so the batter was a little difficult to handle. I rolled the batter into balls and pushed them down onto the cookie sheet. They were delicious...a wonderful cookie but almost with a scone consistency...we kept going back for more. I'll be making these again...without the oil!
After reading all of the rave reviews, I decided to make these cookies. The only modification I made was using organic all-purpose flour since I didn't have any wheat flour in the house. I wanted to wait until after dinner to try one but they looked and smelled so good that I couldn't resist! All I can say is...WOW!! I had another one after dinner, too, and was still impressed. My husband and MIL couldn't believe it when I told them they were healthy and only 99 calories each! I got 2 dozen cookies...some bigger and some smaller. If you're debating on whether or not to try these, debate no more. I can't wait to try making them with the almond meal and wheat flour and playing around with the recipe further.
