the flavor of these cookies were delicous but the ingredients didnt work so well. my first 2 batches became cookie granola because they were so flat i had to scrape them into a bowl. so i kept adding flour and finally after i had added maybe 1/2cup flour and a huge handful of oats more than the recipe called for they finally were able to stay in cookie shape to come off the pan. i added chocolate chips to the last batch or so and that was delious. i got over 4 dozen cookies with the added flour and oats to stiffen them up. but like i mentioned they did taste delicous and not a cookie (or crumble in the bowl) was left.
