      Ooooh! These are sooo good! They're light and delicate rather than doughy and heavy like other oatmeal cookies. I like that a lot. I'm drizzling the with chocolate on top and garnishing with pecan pieces. A keeper for sure!

      I made a lower fat version of these, and they were very well received. Actually I ended up having to make more cookies for a party b/c DH and DD ate these all up. Did not last through the weekend.

      These are great cookies. I love the flavor that is added by the ground pecans (I only had a 1/4 cup). I also used old fashioned oats, not quick, and they still came out fine. I made my cookies a little big not realizing how much whey would spread, so I only got 37. I baked them for 10 minutes. Very yummy!
