I have been looking for a good chocolate chip recipe.  I like oats and coconut in my cookies.  When my daughter saw then come out of the oven she said " Those are huge cookies", both girls liked them.  I used only one cup of sugar (1/2 c brown 1/2 c org. white) and they were sweet enough for my family.  Thanks

These cookies were absolutely awesome, AND I had to leave out the walnuts because I didn't have any! All my friends who had an opportunity to try them loved them, and I had a lot of recipe requests. Thank you so much for this recipe, it's definitely at the top of my vegan dessert list! It's recipes like this that make sharing my dietary convictions with others a little easier and less challenging- this is awesome by anyones standards.

And by the way, I found they were best dipped in black coffee (if there are any left over, that is). Thanks again!

These were really good, the amount of butter scares me though.  :-[
Next time I'll try what other people did to make them less fatty.

I ran out of brown sugar so used 1/2 cup brown and 1/4 cup molasses. I forgot to add the other 3/4 cup of sugar, I also forgot the vanilla. I used applesauce instead of marge ( I don't like how greasy margarine makes cookies), and I cup the choc chips down to 2/3 cup. They turned out pretty good. I'm glad I didn't put the second lot of sugar in, it would have made them too sweet - especially with the chocolate in there. Next time I'll cut the chocolate down to 1/2 cup, crush the walnuts into really small pieces, leave out the coconut, add more oats and add sultanas. Oh, I also used 1 cup wholewheat and the rest plain flour. I wish I had remembered the vanilla though, they would be nicer with vanilla I think. I would like to make these again with less cookie dough and more chunky extras.

BCSH, I use whatever oats I have on hand.  Sometimes I have the quick rolled oats and use those.  Other times I have the old-fashioned rolled oats and use them.  I don't think it matters too much.  If you're concerned about using the old-fashioned rolled oats and it making the cookies chewier, you could always give your oats a quick whirl in the food processor to chop them up a bit before adding to the recipe.

I think quick oats. Not oat flour or the instant kind. Probably not the fat rolled oats, though that may work and be chewier. I'd say say use the ones in between rolled and flour.

What type or oats do I use in these cookies? I'm from New Zealand, we call the hot breakfast dish made of oats 'porridge'. I think Americans call it Oatmeal? So, do I use the oats I would use to make porridge, which would be rolled oats? Or ground up oats, sort of an oat power, which I make really quick creamy porridge with?
