Awesome recipe best ones I have ever had. Only think I would add is the amount of time you should cook while at a boil. I used old fashon oats and it needed to boil for about 2-3 minutes for it to set properly. Must make again Read More

Thought these were pretty good but much more like candy rather than a cookie. I thought the two cups of sugar seemed over the top, so I only used one and it was plenty sweet. To make the cookie more interesting, I used three cups of Honey Bunches of Oats cereal and just used the oats to help thicken it up as it was too runny as other reviews stated. I think these would be awesome with coconut. Made these cookies into heart shapes for my sweeties for VD. Kids and hubby enjoyed them, so thanks Tina! Read More

I am sure these would have tasted fantastic had I not used steel cut oats. The bag said "Ready in 5 Minutes" so I assumed they were quick cooking! They smelled great but turned out awful! I did not have any quick cooking oats on hand so for my second batch I used Rice Krispies instead and they turned out delicious! Read More

I can't say enough about this recipe! It's delicious fast and if you make them tiny (the way we prefer them) you can get over 100. My 3 year old son helps me stir up the batches and the whole thing lasts about 2 days. I dare you to eat just one! Read More

Very good. Held together well. If you use natural peanut butter make sure to add a bit more sugar since there is none in the peanut butter itself. Read More

these were great and nice to be able to fix while dinner was in the oven. I used natural peanut butter so I added an extra 1/2 cup of oats to compensate for the liquidity of this type of peanut butter. I also used old fashioned oats instead of quick cooking and it turned out just fine. Brought back memories from childhood for both my husband and for me and my 2 1/2 yr. old loved them. Read More
