As far as I can see, the only flaw in this recipe is the combination of the temp and cook time. I dropped my time to 9 minutes at 400 degrees, and they were perfect. I tweaked it a bit, due to what I had on hand. I used coconut oil - which was a new experience. Other than it being super solid, and having to beat it down (= for a long time to get it to incorporate, it worked well. And I used chopped pecans, instead of the walnuts. I questioned the "1/3 tsp" measure on the baking soda and vanilla - but found one in ONE of my sets of measuring spoons. [I forgot the vanilla, by the way - and it was fine (=] I did roll them into balls and flatten them into patties, after reading sassyoldlady's review. I did 12 as is, then added a heaping 1/3 c chocolate covered craisins for the second half batch. It yielded 23 cookies. But I was picking at the dough [which was so yummy!], and I bet I ate my 24th cookie raw (= I brought them to work to share, and these got RAVE reviews from my coworkers!


Recipe Group Selection ~ 12, January 2013 – I really enjoyed this oatmeal cookie. Crunchy on the outside, soft and chewy on the inside, just like I think oatmeal cookies should be. I thought the order of the listed ingredients and the directions were a mess. Usually the listed ingredients are in the order of the directions – not with this one. I tried baking these 2 different ways. Fourteen minutes at 400° would have been too long in my oven. After flattening the cookies, just a little, they were done at the 9 minute mark at 400°. I also tried baking for 11 minutes at 350° without flattening at all. This resulted in my favorite baked cookie. I think this is a great tasting cookie that kept well without losing the crunchiness or softness. Thanks Bryan for sharing your recipe. I think this was a great pick for “Recipe Group” this week.


YUMMY! I used 100% natural whole grain old fashioned Quaker Oats and followed the recipe leaving out the walnuts due to diet restriction but baked for 9 minutes. I also used parchment paper instead of greasing a cookie sheet. Perfect! I would have loved to have added the walnuts as I feel that would have put it over the top. I made 24 cookies so they must have been a little smaller than called for. I did notice that I ran the mixer a little longer than I do with other recipes, so it was really well mixed. Thank you Bryan for sharing such a YUMMY recipe!! We LOVED it!
