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.
