    One of our favorites! My daughter dubbed them 'brown cookies' when she was 4!

    I've been looking for a recipe like this. I used to get these in the cafeteria of an elementary school I went to and loved them. I think I've also had them with peanut butter in them.

    How could anyone forget those old fashion recipes. I remember those days, and still do make them once in a while. I also like to add marshmallow at the last min before dropping them on waxed paper, and it's pretty good! I also add 1/2 cup peanut butter to my batch along with Oats.
