Would make this again.
I didn't do the jars...I went straight to baking the cookies. I didn't use the chocolate bar either. I used chopped pecans for the nuts. This made a delicious cookie. 5 stars

They were great! I'll probably make them again next year. 5 stars

A+ I took the easy route, did not blend the oatmeal, nor did I add the chocolate bar. I added 1/2 cup milk chocolate chips instead of the chocolate bar. Which meant, that it was layered like this: flour mixture, oats, white sugar, brown sugar, semi-sweet chocolate chips, then the milk chocolate chips. Fit perfectly in the mason jar. Then using pinking shears, I cut a circle about the size of a tea saucer out of pretty fabric, laid it over the insert lid, added the jar band, and finally tied a recipe card through a ribbon and attached over the jar lid and was done. Great gift. Pretty. Tasty. Thanks. 5 stars

Would make this again.
Brilliant idea. Have made several jars of Spiced Oatmeal Raisin and now moving on to Choc Chip.
Only thing I don't understand is the whole cup thing.
Have now converted the recipe into grams - it's so much quicker to weigh everything straight into the jars (and less mess too!). Don't you have kitchen scales in the USA?
Tip: A jam funnel makes filling the jars very easy.
5 stars
