"This is the best recipe I've ever used. Chewy but holds together well. I halved the recipe except I still used 2 cups chocolate chips; substituted 1/2 butter & 1/2 olive oil for the all butter part of the recipe; I used a pinch of salt & slightly less sugar than recommended; I also added 1 cup of chopped pecans & used traditional oats. I've tried different recipes for years to find a good one since it is my favorite type of cookie and this is where I stop. I found the best one. Thanks Ruth. It's a keeper."

"Cookies were flat and gummy. Added another 3/4 cup flour to get a soft more rounded cookie. Taste was very good. Will keep looking for a oatmeal chocolate chip cookie recipe."

"These were a hit. I used half whole wheat flour and half all-pupose. It was such a large recipe that I split the dough in half and used chocolate chips for half and then butterscotch chips in the other half...both were great. I also added walnuts to both. I think that you can use it as a basic oatmeal cookie recipe and add whatever your family likes. Thanks for sharing this recipe."
