These are great! They have a nice, crispy surface and chewy inside. I'll be making these again but perhaps adding 1.5 c chips. I bet they're great with dark chips as well. Thanks for sharing!

Not fair to rate a recipe lower because it sounds good but you haven’t tried it. Don’t rate it until you try it! And for heavens sake, don’t change an ingredient ie quick oatmeal to old fashioned and blame the recipe if your cookies are dry. Old fashioned does make a drier chewier cookie as it soaks up more moisture from the eggs and butter. The oats are uncut and uncooked!! I always substitute while oats but then it isn’t the same recipe is it

These cookies are delicious! They turned out chewy and have a nice amount of chocolate. I used old fashioned oats as I did not have the quick cooking on hand.

The absolute BEST oatmeal cookie recipe I have ever made!

Amazing. This might be my new favorite cookie - plenty of chocolate chips even for this chocolate lover. I only had while chocolate pudding mix but otherwise followed the directions exactly, other than making the cookies a bit bigger.

Perfect cookie for dunking, crispy on the outside, soft on the inside. I used a medium cookie scoop and baked them at 350 degrees for 10 minutes (convection setting). I flattened them slightly when they came out of the oven.

I changed a few things. I used sugar-free pudding and chocolate chips, splenda to replace white sugar, splenda brown sugar blend (3/8 cup), and old fashioned oats (because that's what I had). They were a little drier than other cookies I have made, but they did hold together just fine. I was surprised mine did not flatten out but looked like haystacks when baked. 2nd batch I flattened before baking. They tasted fine either way, and I will make these again. Thanks for a healthier cookie recipe. I only got 4 dozen, but used a medium cookie scoop so that is probably why.

These were quite tasty! I loved the texture additions of the oatmeal and nuts. They are a nice change of pace from the usual regular chocolate chip or oatmeal cookies.

To make things easier, I melted the butter before whisking in the sugar, and I made them into bars using a 15x10x1 jelly roll pan, baking for about 18 minutes until lightly browned around the edges. Let them cool completely before cutting/eating because they probably wouldn't have held together too well out of the oven.They were absolutely delicious! The oats were a little crispy, and they were very tasty. My husband is trying to keep them all for himself. I usually wouldn't make a recipe using convenience items like vanilla pudding, but I happened to have some in bulk I needed to use up (1/2 cup= a package).

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.
