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.
I've always wanted to try this recipe and I finally did last week. I made them for my sister for school desserts and she LOVES them! I love the crunchiness from the ground oats - but you can't tell that there is oats in them. I did the recommended heaping teaspoon portion and made 56 cookies! They are perfect bite size cookies. Have had a request to make a double batch next time around. Thank you!!!!!
