THIS IS A FANTASTIC 'NO BAKE COOKIE' THAT'S BEEN AROUND FOR YEARS. I DON'T ADD THE FLAKED COCONUT AND I USE SPLENDA IN PLACE OF REGULAR SUGAR TO LOWER THE CALORIES AND CARBS. FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS ON THE SPLENDA BOX FOR CORRECT AMOUNT TO EQUAL 2 CUPS.

Toast oats until lightly brown, in oven or in a heavy saucepan using low heat. Use unsweetened coconut and natural peanut butter.

I like these cookies alot but in our scholl they made them with no chocolate they almost tasted like butterscotch. If anyone has that recipe I would love to have it.

This cookie is the BEST!!! These are the same ones my high school would serve and quickly run out of. Now I make them for my family and friends and always get requests for more. The only thing I substitute is I use coconut oil instead of butter since it adds to the coconut taste in them. We all think they're perfect just the way they are!

I've never added coconut but I bet they are outstanding with that addition. Make a double batch. You'll eat one .. batch that is!

I left out the coconut because of personal taste, but these are exactly like the ones my mama used to make when I was younger. My non-sugar liking husband loved them, too. Amazing!
