    Really easy to make and yummy!  -  25 Jun 2012


    They are really nice, my scales were a little off for the first few measurements so I'm guessing they didn't come out quite as thick as they should have but great recipe.  -  30 Oct 2013


    Very good, although like almost everything I make, I modified the recipe a bit. Instead of using the egg whites I used one whole egg, I increased the oatmeal and reduced the flour a bit. I also added more chocolate chips. I got almost 3 dozen cookies using heaping teaspoons full. It's kind of a flat cookie. It's also a crispy on the outside, chewy on the inside cookie.
