I tried Bev's substitution of almond meal for rolled oats, and the results were terrific! This is a yummy cookie with great flavor, and the almond meal added a nice bit of nuttiness to it. I'll definitely make these again. I spent a little extra on premium chocolate chips (bittersweet instead of semisweet) and the rich, dark taste made it well worth the extra buck or so.
