Add chopped nuts to make these cookies even crunchier. After beating in the dry ingredients, stir up to one cup of pecans, walnuts, or almonds into the dough. To make the cookies all the same size, use a measuring tablespoon to scoop the dough, then level off.

    Not sure why there are no comments on these, but they are delicious. I love oatmeal cookies and these have it all. Chewy, soft, crispy all at the same time. Used 1/2 C white sugar. Trying to reduce more of the sugar w/o losing all the qualities of the cookie. Does anyone know how to do that? Does the white sugar make it chewy and the brown sugar make it soft? The dates add lots of sweetness. I also added walnuts, which is a great combination with the dates. They are delish!

    Everybody loved these. They said they like the dates more than the regular raisin oatmeal cookies I make.
