Really tasty. I used 1/4 cup olive oil, regular whole wheat flour, and 1/2 cup cane sugar + 1T molasses instead of similarly listed ingredients. Delicious, and plenty sweet enough for me. Even with the reduced oil, they were (are) still tender and slightly chewy. I let the dough sit in the fridge overnight before baking. A keeper.

Just made it today and they were so good! I am not into baking choco cookies as I get turned off by the amount of butter it requires. I made a few modification though: i used just 3/4 cup of brown sugar (i think i will decrease it to 2/3 cup next time, just a bit sweet for my taste), and used bittersweet chocolate. (Will probably make half choco chips and half walnut next time). Other than that, a keeper! Thanks!
