    These cookies are delicious! Definitely add the pinch of salt that others recommended (thanks for that). Otherwise, really, really good. I will say that I used "crunchy" peanut butter since I didn't have smooth, and it worked just fine. Wow. Yum!

    My boyfriend hates oatmeal but these yummy cookies hide it so well that he never even notices :-)

    These are addicting, especially freshly baked. I added a pinch of salt, mixed milk chocolate and semi-sweet chocolate chips, and added a handful of chopped low-sodium roasted and salted peanuts. I think the problem some reviewers had with dryness was due to overbaking. 11 minutes was perfect in my oven (they will look barely golden on the crests). To give day-old cookies fresh-baked flavor and texture, warm at 325 degrees for 5 minutes.

    So, I read all of the reviews prior to making these. I took several of the reviewers advise. I used a pinch of salt and I was afraid of the dryness, so I was going to use milk, but was out and used about 2 tablespoons of sour cream instead. The outcome was pretty tasty, very, soft cookie. Hard to tell when they are done because of the light color. I did not have the opportunity to try the natural peanut butter, but will next time. Even though everyone that tasted them said they were very good, I still felt that something was missing.

    uhh.. in the recipe it said i needed 1 cup of light brown sugar, i'm confused. I kept reading the directions and it never said anything about putting it in. So i forgot to add it, and even if i did i wouldn't have known when to add it. Cookies didn't come out too well. :/

    i wanted to love these cookies, but they did turn out pretty dry. the flavor was awesome (how could it not be?!) but the results were less than great. i'll be trying again because i'm sure it's worth getting it right!

    I specifucally went online to see if there was a correction about 2 tabelspoons of vanilla. I don't ever recall seeing a recipe that called for that much vanilla. There were no comments on that. But I too agree needs a little salt. Also, I forgot to put in the brown sugar, and blamed myself, but seeing the comments, I realized it wasn't in the body of the recipe. (Not to say that that's really an excuse!) And 12 oz. of choc. chips is 2 cups.

    easy, and quick to make. I will definitely make again. I used 3 eggs instead of 2

    SO GOOD! My kids and husband love them! The only thing I did differently was added 2 Tablespoons of Flax Seed Meal to the flour mixture! Hard to believe only 133 calories!

    These cookies are really great! They make a TON though, I made 75 small cookies, and next time I'll definitely make bigger cookies. the mixture is pretty crumbly, too and make sure to not overbake, but mine came out moist and delicious.

    "1. Preheat oven to 350°. In a medium bowl with a hand or stand mixer on medium speed, cream butter and sugars until smooth" sugarS. That is the time when you add the brown sugar. Anyway, I really made this recipe my own. I used almond butter, and less of it, less oats, added 1/2 cup buttermilk, 1 small banana, some sunflower seeds and flax seeds and a dash of sea salt. I also only added 1/2 tablespoon vanilla. My oven undercooks and I made kind of large cookies so I put them in for 15 minutes. They were PERFECT! I suggest playing around, maybe adding some milk and/or a banana to make sure they are soft like I did.

    This are amaizing! I tried them without the chocolate (cause I did not have it at home) and they taste amaizing I can just imagine with the chocolate. Thank you! This were my first Oatmeal cookies ever. What a way to start! Thank you!

    These cookies are delicious! I too took everyone else's advice and added about 1/8 tsp of salt and also 2 T of sour cream. They were very soft while they were hot but after about 2 days they turned 'crunchy'? But they are still so good I definitely recommend this recipe with the few revisions!

    My daughter and I had fun making these and they were delicious. We might prefer a bit less sugar and a bit more peanut butter. We find it very odd that some of the people giving low ratings to the recipe state that they didn't follow the recipe. Experimenting is great, but don't give the recipe a bad rating unless you actually followed it. Maybe you'd love it if you did follow it.

    These were amazing! I made them for a bake sale, and everyone loved them! The next day someone even came up to me, told me they were the best cookies they had ever had, and asked for the recipe! I changed one thing though. Instead of using butter, I used Sunsweet Lighter Bake, so there was no fat except for the peanut butter and chocolate. I will make these again!

    First of all I can't believe so many people said it doesn't say to add the brown sugar because at the beginning it clearly says "sugars" as in white and brown. Anyway these cookies are awesome. I only had about half the choc chips on hand so I added some cocoa powder along with what I had and they ended up like baked no-bake cookies. Soft and yummy!
