    Shawnee TX's Note:

    So good and easy to make! My siblings and I made huge batches of these cookies Sunday afternoons, and they were usually gone by Tuesday! The time for boiling the mixture is listed at 5 minutes, but if you cook it a little less, the cookies are chewier.

      Excellent! I only used 1 1/2 C sugar and it was still very sweet. I boiled it for only 2 min and it turned out great. I love the coconut in it!

      We just love these! The only changes I make are to increase the vanilla to 1tsp, cook at a rolling boil for one full minute and add 1/2c crunchy peanut butter before adding oats. I find that my cookies are less likely to be dry and fall apart when they are cooked for a shorter time. Thanks ! :)

      This gets 5 stars in my book, because it's relatively more nutritious than other cookies, as well as being delicious! I cut back on the sugar a bit, using about 1 1/2 cups instead of a full 2 cups. I added the walnuts also, but increased them to 3/4 cup, and toasted them first. YUMMY COOKIES! Thanks for this quick and easy recipe, Shawnee TX!
