This was a disaster for me. I made it with egg beaters and as they baked the eggs just left the cookie! It looked like sweet fried eggs surrounding the piles of dry oats. Then I added 1 cup of flour. My 4 year old enjoyed them Read More

They were yummy but need flour/something to help them stick together. Must cook on parchment and cook a little longer than recommended. Read More
