"I followed the recipe. I found this cookie to be delicate and scrumptious, good peanut taste. I read the directions to fast and didn't flatten them a bit. So they were round balls. They don't spread. And I doubled the recipe and came out fine. A good peanut and oatmeal cookie."

"Very yummy, only reason why it's not a one star! Great taste for some nice CRUMBLES. Which is all this turned into. Luckily I read the comments before making these and added things to make them less dry. Good recipe but like I said very crumbly."

"I have made these multiple times. I always add a 1/2 c of unsweetened apple sauce. I've also added well drained crushed pineapple or chunks and unsweetened coconut shreds, apple chunks and cinnamon, made a depression in the top and filled it with jam/jelly's, and dried fruit bits with potato chip pieces. They always come out wonderfully for me"

"I made them and they tasted great! I added chocolate chips! I will double the recipe next time and add walnuts too. As it is, they made 1 dozen, palm sized cookies. The only way this could've made two dozen would be to make them very tiny, like silver dollar size."

"Boo. These cookies were so incredibly dry--nothing I had ever baked before. Going forward it will need a whole lot of tweaking."

"I used creamy peanut butter, quick oats, a little box of raisins, 1/2 tsp of vanilla and 1 tsp of honey, everything the same. I did double the recipe including what I added extra, not the raisins though. They were good, husband loved them and I will try other things that I have read in the comments next time. Over all, it is a simple recipe that tasted good and can be adjusted to what you like."

"I tried 3 times. Following the recipe exactly. The batter was falling apart. I thought that the crumbling wouldn't a problem. The finished product looks like crushed up granola. The taste is ok. Not a cookie for sure."

"I added a tbsp of oil to the recipe and used creamy peanut butter. They came out great. Nothing like homemade cookies! Best of all no flour or butter! Will make these often."
