The mixture was quite wet and sticky, but I think it was the oats that made it like that. It certainly didn't affect the result at all. Do watch them carefully in the oven, they seem to burn around the edges quite quickly. That may have been because there was no oven temperature listed in the recipe, so I guessed at 190C, which may have been a bit hot. Everyone in my house really loves these cookies, I will definately be making them again.
