In my opinion, these are better than traditional oatmeal raisin cookies. This is a good option for someone who prefers chocolate over raisins (because after all, raisins are just wanna-be chocolate chips), or someone who likes a hearty, not too sweet cookie. I used olive oil, almonds, and regular oatmeal. Stirring the dough took a little elbow grease -- at the end I had more success with a wooden spoon than the electronic beaters. I did end up adding a splash of milk to make it easier to work with. This dough does NOT keep well, so bake right away. The cookies do not spread out very much, so you can load the pan pretty closely.



These are really good. In an effort to keep my husband away from some of the really gross snack foods (Little Debbies, Hostess Twinkies...) I have been making more things from scratch and these will be a staple at our house. Normally I take great pains to follow a recipe to the letter the first time but I was out of chocolate chips and used Reeses Peanut Butter Chips instead and was very pleased with the result. Thanks for a great recipe. Additional Note! I made these again a couple of weeks later and (still) didn't have any chocolate chips and put in a heaping 1/2 cup of toffee chips. Wonderful.....



This is our new favorite cookie recipe! The texture of the grape nuts really makes it what it is. We made them even healthier by using 1/2 the butter and replacing the other half with applesauce. I also like to double the recipe and make a few batches and then freeze some of the dough for later use. We also eat the dough straight from the freezer. :)
