“These are huge cookies that the kids will love to get their little hands on. They are great to take to picnics or gatherings. I used to take them to Sunday School picnics when my grandkids were little. I even did a double batch for a treat at AWANA. Adults like them, too. They have delicious flavor. You may notice that there is no flour in the recipe--that is correct--there is no flour. The oats bind it together.”
