"While we usually like the flavor combination of oats and chocolate chips, we did not like these cookies at all. They were sickenly sweet, sticky instead of chewy, and, unlike the nice thick cookies shown in the above photo, came out as flat as pancakes. IF I try the recipe again, I will reduce the sugar and use bread flour to keep the finished cookies thick."

"Been making these for years and they are wonderful - freeze well too. Because my husband is not too keen on chocolate, I quite often use raisins that I've boiled in water for 1 minute and then drain. Makes the raisins softer. Great recipe!"

"I make this recipe often for my family. I use Hershey's Special Dark chocolate Chips and it is a HUGE hit everywhere I take them. I found that if the butter is too soft, the cookies end up more crunchy than chewy. I've mixed 1 cup old-fashioned oats with 1 cup quick cooking oats and it came out just fine."
