I made these cookies for a co-workers going away party and everyone loved them. I'm even getting requests for the recipe. I halved the recipe, which was more than enough and substituted 3/4 cup peanut butter for a 1/2 cup margarine, 3 cups of quick oats instead of 2, 1 cup of flour instead of 2 and I added an extra tsp of vanilla. I also used 1 cup of mini semi-sweet chocolate chips and 1 cup of mini candy-coated pieces instead of the half the recipe recommends. Upon recommendation, I rolled the dough into golf ball size balls and smashed them down into neat circles with a spoon, baking 6 at a time. The size was perfect and the cookies turned out AWESOME. I did end up with a couple left; be forwarned that after 4 days, the cookies will be stale, however I look forward to making this recipe again and freezing some for the holidays. Thanks!
