Crazy about chocolate chips? This chewy cookie has plenty, not to mention lots of heart-healthy oatmeal. The gang’ll come back for more and more... so this big batch is perfect. —Diane Neth, Menno, South Dakota

"The dough was very dry and I had a hard time keeping it together on the cookie sheet. They were falling apart. I used Old fashioned oats. I don't know if that made a difference, but I have made other oatmeal cookies with those oats and they were great. Will not make this recipe again."

"These were simply delicious. The only thing I did differently was I use the small chocolate covered raisins in place of the chocolate chips. I had some left over from the holidays and thought this was a great way to use them up. Will continue to make this way for my family, but if you are not a raisin fan, these are outstanding as the recipe is written."

"Everyone liked these.

I made half a recipe and got 39 cookies using my small (2 Tbsp.) cookie scoop.
I also cut the sugar, but only to about 2/3 of the original amount. (They still are sweeter than I like them.) I also used whole wheat flour."

"These cookies were delicious. The only difference is that I cut the sugars in half. Everyone raved about them."

"I've made these twice now to take to gatherings with friends, and they always receive great reviews! The only thing that I would note is that I don't think the recipe makes 7 dozen cookies. I made a half batch last night and probably got around 30 small cookies out of it."
