Recipe by emily9

I got this out of my Family Circle magazine years ago. These really are good cookies.

I ground my oats (about 3 cups became 2 of an oat powder) but other wise made as written. Chewy and delicious. I made this for a friend who had a baby 3 weeks ago, I gave her a large plate full and I got a lovely thank you message telling me how wonderful they were. Such a great recipe, can't wait to try them again with white chocolate and nuts. ( I should mention I got just under 7 dozen - that is a lot of cookies!!) Thanks for posting!
