Another favorite from "Towns, Trails and Special Times.....The Marlboro Country Cookbook". These are not your everyday cookies.....peanut butter, oatmeal, chocolate, dates, nuts..........they are more like an incredibly delicious energy bar! A lot goes in to them, but they are worth the effort. Great to carry on a hiking trip or camping. Very hearty and yummy!

I was restless this afternoon and in the mood for baking so, encouraged by the reviews, I decided to bake these cookies. The second batch is in the oven, the first one cooling. I was curious if they turned out OK so broke off a piece of one of them and then soon went back to finish it off. They are really tasty, with a glass of milk - just perfect. And no flour! Thank you for this lovely recipe FolkDiva! I will make it again and again.

Awesome cookies. Eaten right away by my family. All have been surprised that there is no flour! Can be virtually gluten-free if able to find the gluten-free oatmeal. Didn't quite make it in time for ZWT5, but did get it in for two vacations. Thanks so much for posting!!!!
