Easy and the best consistancy ive ever got my cookies to!! Put in slighty less oats, and half a cup of raisins, beautiful!!! - 28 Jan 2013


Overall I quite liked these cookies. I did find there were a little too many oats, but that may be down to personal preference. Reduced oats to 2 1/2 cups, added 1/4 cup of Raisins and 1/4 cup of mini choc chips. Followed the recipe exactly - 12 Jan 2013
