I miss my grandma. This was the snack she always served every time my siblings and I visited her home! It is a very quick and easy recipe that you should try. If you have kids, I know for sure that they are going to love these sweet cookies. Also, Halloween is fast approaching, you might want to consider making these cookies to give to those super cute trick-or-treaters instead of the usual candies. I don’t know but if it was me, I would love getting these cookies instead of candies. By the way, try adding peanuts on top for a more nutty flavor. It is awesome. You need to try it. Anyway, feel free to tweak the recipe a little. If you do not like cooking oats, you can just add the peanuts topping. Don’t sleep on the oats though, I highly recommend that you do not remove it from the set of ingredients because it tastes really good! Give this one a try and surprise your family and friends with these awesome cookies. Enjoy!
