Reviews for Easy Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies

"This recipe is definitely not made for old fashioned oats, so use a different recipe if that's what you have! I made it work by adding a few things. Another tablespoon of peanut butter (I used creamy), a tablespoon of coconut oil, a tablespoon of honey, a dash of milk, and a dash of vanilla. They ended up turning out well but it would just be easier to find a better recipe. If you don't add stuff they would just be oat crumbles."
"I used old fashioned oats. And I didn't have baking soda, after much debate over whether or not I was going to run to the store solely for baking soda, I just used baking powder. I also doubled the recipe and the yield is off, it only made 2 dozen. With doubling the recipe, I used half creamy peanut butter and half crunchy peanut butter. I baked them for 7 minutes. PERFECTION!!! These cookies were so delicious that my husband ate over a half dozen before the second tray was done baking. I would definitely recommend these cookies with a few tweaks!"
"I work in a group home for seniors and I am always looking for good tasting and healthy (sort of) ideas for baking with them. We made theses and they loved them. I know a few people had bad luck with these so try baking them for just six minutes as we did. We are going to make them again and add chocolate chips. One resident suggested using this recipe for thumb print cookies and adding strawberry jam."
"I'm really glad I read the comments before popping these in the oven! The dough seemed very dry so I added 1/2 cup of butter and 2 tsp. vanilla. The cookies were still very crumbly, though the flavor is good. Is this recipe missing a couple wet ingredients? Also, the yield was only 14 small cookies, as they didn't expand at all."
"this is a really a terrible recipe. I knew by the batter that they would be a crumbly mess but hoped that they would transform into something better in the oven. It didn't happen. I should have baked it like granola because that it what it turned into, a big pile of OK tasting crumbs."
