My daughter and I made these together this morning. They were simple to make and very tasty. Best of all, it was a good way to use up the quick cooking oats that my husband bought which no one in the family eats. The only problem that I ran into (that has nothing to do with the recipe) is the consistency. I only use all natural peanut butter that has to be refrigerated. It has a very soft consistency. In order to firm up the cookies I knew we were going to have to add extra oats, a little flour etc... My daughter and I opted to stir in roughly 1/2 cup of Uncle Sam's Original cereal into the mixture before spooning it onto the wax paper. The addition of the cereal added a little crunch do to the flakes and flax seed. Thank you for posting your recipe. Made and reviewed for Spring PAC 2012.
