A great oatmeal cookie recipe that you can adapt to suit your own tastes. Read the footnote for ideas on substitutions and additions.
You can make almost any addition to this recipe - instead of chocolate chips, try currants, dried cranberries, dried blueberries or chopped white chocolate. You can omit the almonds, or instead try chopped walnuts, pistachios, hazelnuts or pecans. Let your imagination run wild!
This was the best chocolate chip cookie recipe i've ever tried. I love the texture of the rolled oats. I used mixed nuts instead of almonds and it worked well. Another time I tried using P.B. chips. It's true... whatever you do to them they turn out great! They're crisp on the outside but really chewy inside. yum! =Þ - 24 Jun 2000 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I absolutly loved these cookies!!!! I gave the recipie to my mom and she loved them too! My boyfriend gives them a 'thumbs up' on the uncooked dough! Try them......you'll be glad you did. - 15 Dec 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I added about 1/4 cup more flour (which I always do when making chocolate chip cookies) to make them less "flat" and rise a bit more. Also used butterscotch morsels in place of semisweet chips. These were perfect - not flat at all and the taste was great! I also used splenda sugar substitute in place of white sugar. Yum, Yum.
