These cookies are so good they didn't last long. My new favorite peanut butter cookie recipe!

These cookies are our new favorite! I was hesitant since they did not have flour, but they turned out perfect! I love the peanut butter, oats and chocolate together!

I didn't want to take the time to make regular cookies so I made a half recipe as bar cookies in a 13 x 9-in. well-greased pan and baked at 350 for 20 minutes. These are very good cookies, tasty and fairly moist. I used 1/2 cup each of regular milk chocolate chips and miniature semisweet chips, but otherwise used the listed ingredients halved. Thanks to mreilly615 for comments about making these as bar cookies.

Very Good. I only had 2cups of oats so added 1 cup of flour. Also used 1/2 cup regular sized chocolate chips.

Great cookie! Versatile - could use raisins, peanut butter chips, chopped peanuts - for a different cookie each time. Love oatmeal cookies!

I make these quite a bit to send to my daughter in college and for my son to take to school for break to hold him over til lunch. I follow the recipe, except reduce the sugar to 1/2 cup, use Old Fashioned Oats, and occasionally substitute applesauce for the butter. They are soft, delicious, and fairly healthy for a cookie! Yummm!

These were a big hit with the family. I halved the recipe and made bar cookies out of them. I cooked them in a 9X13 cake pan and cooked them for 20 min. They were moist and very good.
