These cookies are easy-to-make, moist, and include a lot of nutritious good stuff. The recipe is an adaptation of a couple of other recipes found on-line.

Mmmm - very tasty! I wasn't sure what was meant by 'thick cut oatmeal' was so I used steel cut oatmeal. Not bad but it gave a little extra 'nutty' kind of texture. Very tasty but I think next time I'll 'bump it up' and use old fashioned oats, add a little more nuts (for taste) and cranberries and, possibly some chopped dates and add a little more spices. Thanks for the tasty and healthy recipe!
