These cookies were buttery an moist in the inside, and slightly chewy on the outside. Absolutely delicious. I used whole wheat flour, 1/4 cup butter and 1/4 cup olive oil. I also chopped up 1/4 cup of dried cranberries and walnuts into the batter, which gave the cookies some zing and nuttiness that I really enjoyed. Strongly recommend these chocolate chip oatmeal cookies to any cookies lovers :-)
