    Turned out great! I mixed half with just chocolate for kids and the other half added the coconut and pecans as recommended (for the adults). Will make again definitely!

    My grandson and I made these today, and they were easy to make and very delicious! The ground oatmeal gives them a really nice consistency. And coconut in chocolate chip cookies is a perfect addition. We used bittersweet chocolate and unsweetened coconut and omitted the nuts as he is not a fan. We will make them again!

    LOVE THESE! Perfectly crisp on the outside & chewy on the inside. I made them with hazelnuts instead but still amazing. For the people who said they were dry, I baked them at the least amount of time the recipe said & that was enough (for my oven). Maybe that'll work for you too.

    Turned out really well! I left out the coconut and nuts because I didn't have them and the taste was still good.

    Delicious! I did not have the coconut so I just added more chocolate chips and they came out great! Crunchy on the outside and soft in the middle!

    I used granola and walnuts instead of oats and pecans. And added extra chocolate chips. They came out good. I wasn't a fan of rotating the cookies, so next time I will see if it makes a difference or not.

    I followed the recipe exactly and the cookies turned out great! The texture had just the right amount of crispness yet chewy in the middle.

    This is our new favorite cookie recipe. The adjustments are the baking time and moving between the racks; we do not prefer a crunchy cookie so I leave them to bake at the lower rack.

    Followed the directions but didn't have pecans. They were really good without them, but I could tell they would work really well if I had them. Next time! Husband approved. ;-)
