These have just about everything in them, oil takes the place of butter to create a crispy outside with a chewy inside and whole wheat flour for extra flavor, they will make a wonderful addition to your holiday baking tray! --- servings is only estimated, these may also be baked in baking pan then sliced as bars.

Kitt, I made these for the first time last summer but didn't know how to give them a review at the time. Now that I know I can tell you how utterly delish these are. I make these pretty big and eat them as breakfast cookies. Wonderful!
