I'm glad to see the recipe has been revised! I, too, had to guess at mixing. The size of the pan is also not mentioned. The first time I made them I used a smaller baking sheet, and I had to bake them for about 30 minutes. This time I used a 15 x 10 pan, and it was better. I still had to cook them for 18 minutes, yet they are still the gooey texture you should look for. These are very easy to mix up! I would recommend not greasing the baking sheet; with this amount of oil, it's really not necessary and makes the batter much easier to spread. I add 3t of baking powder and 1t of salt to the recipe with all-purpose flour.
Really not that great of a cookie. Too many chocolate chips, not enough oatmeal, not all that great even if these things were changed.
So easy and fast... If you don't have self-rising flour on hand (which I did not) just be sure to add a little baking soda and baking powder.
I followed this recipe exactly and was quite pleased with the results. Although it's not my favorite bar cookie, it's definitely very good and and I would definitely make it again. I also love that the ingredients are things I usually have on hand - great for satisfying sudden cookie cravings!
I added 1 cup craisins and 1 cup chopped almonds instead of the chocolate chips. I also used 1/2 cup melted butter and 1/2 cup oil instead of 1 cup oil. They were very good!
The omission of the oil and oats in the directions has now been corrected.
Turned out great! I love how simple the recipe is and how quickly they come together. I tasted the dough before putting it in the pan and they seemed like they were missing something so I added about a half tsp of butter flavoring and that really seemed to do the trick. I also added pecans to ours. These make a great breakfast treat as they are kind of a cross between a blondie and a granola bar.
These are an awesome change from the traditional chocolate chip cookie. I'm glad someone went in and fixed the mistakes in the recipe. If you make it just as it is now, you will be fine.
