Great base recipe. I did tweak a little. Didn't add the caster sugar and reduced sugar overall. I didn't add any nuts or coconut. I added some milk chocolate raisins and some dark chocolate chips. I cooked for a little longer and halfway through flattened the tops with a fork. Delicious. - 30 Jun 2013
This is a thousand dollar recipe, I've been looking for something like this for awhile! However, I did make a few modifications to make it more whole grain and wonderfully delicious. I subbed the 1 3/4 cups of flour with 1 cup whole wheat flour and 3/4 cup oat flour, then cut the 1/2 cup of white sugar to 1/4 cup of white sugar (someone on here thought it was too sweet). I also used only 2.5 cups of rolled oats, as that was all that I had left. Another tip - put your cookie dough in the fridge for 1 hour before you start to bake it and use a small icecream scooper to form the cookies on your cookie sheet. It tasted wonderfully chewy, rich and perfectly sweet. It reminded me of the Double Tree Chocolate Chip cookies they used to give out at their hotel, but better because I used all organic ingredients and absolutely no preservatives. Yummy! - 27 Jan 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
