The missing ingredient in these cookies is SALT - that's why they taste too sweet. I cut the sugar to 1 1/2 cups, used old fashioned oats, adding another 1/2 cup to make the mixture more dry, and added salt to taste. The salt made a HUGE difference (what cookie recipe do you know of that doesn't have salt added????). I also added raw sunflower seeds. The salted kind would have been even better. For a more chocolate taste, mix in either semi-sweet or dark chocolate morsels after you have mixed in the oatmeal. Instead of dropping by teaspoons full, I rolled them into balls the size of walnuts. I ended up with 36 balls plus a few.
