    This recipe has been adapted from an old, old internet hoax and baked by me since about 1990. Yikes! Doesn't stop it being a fab choc cookie! Kids can help in mixing it all together from * in the recipe, and putting the balls of mix on the baking sheets. Can be nut and dairy-free if desired, but not, sadly, gluten-free. You can also substitute more oatmeal for the nuts and/or swap the choc chips for raisins.
