Awesome! What a nice break from the usual chocolate peanut butter ones! I have a child that can't have peanut butter so he is especially appreciative!

These are really quick & good I did however have to cut back on the oatmeal. I used 3 cups instead of 4 cups. Using 4 cups my first batch dried out. After cutting back to 3 cups of oatmeal,they were perfect. Thank you.

HOLY COW!! These are awesome! My boys (including my husband) love these. I don't think they even cooled all the way before people started eating them.
Warning::::::make sure you have your arms warmed up for stirring.
