Do you use regular or quick oats for this recipe?

This is exactly how I like my oatmeal cookies! I used M&Ms instead of raisins.

This is a really good recipe. I usually don't like oatmeal cookies because they're usually too crunchy or chewy for my taste but not this recipe. The batter was easy to work with and the cookies turned out soft and delish. I did change the recipe by decreasing the brown sugar by about a 1/4 cup, used 1 1/2 instead of 2 sticks of unsalted butter, used liquid egg substitute, and did not use the salt. I left out the raisins first -I wanted to see what they tasted like plain. I then added mini chocolate chips. Both batches were good -though if you're going to do plain use all the sugar called for and maybe a little more if you have a real sweet tooth. Next time I'll do that and use the raisins too and I know it will be even better!

I don't know where u buy Quaker oats "old fashioned" but I'm in Texas, waxahachie, and my NEW container reads the recipe is not the same. On the lid everything is the same as this recipe EXCEPT it calls for 3/4 cup of brown sugar. This recipe asked for 1cup! Stop the craziness. Oh but perhaps north and south may be different LOL

This is a great recipe, however, I did not have "quick oats", so I had to use what I had, which made the batter a little dry. I decided to add 2 tablespoons of applesauce to moisten & flavor it a little & it was awesome!

I just made these cookies and they are chewy and delicious. I made half of them with raisins, and the other half with chocolate chips, and they all came out great! Yummy!! I saved this recipe as I will definitely make it again. By the way, this recipe is quite different from the one found on the Quaker package!

I printed the recipe and put in my kitchen drawer-named them OH, H--- YES! cookies. To the reviewer who mentioned it's exactly the same as that under lid of Quaker Oats - it's not. It may be the one that USED to be years ago, or similar. The one under lid these days come out flat and crunchy. I've looked for this recipe for years and am so glad to have found it. To whoever submitted it... bows, curtsies and applause to you.
