The cookies were very dry and crumbly. The 2nd batch I added a tablespoon of honey and they held together better.
I am wondering if those who found the cookies too dry used "old fashioned" instead of quick oats.
Just made these and they're just OK. I used fresh ground natural peanut butter that may have affected the way it mixed up. Never did become fluffy. Very dense but actually a good thing.....kept me from eating the whole thing. Not sure if I would make these again.
Very good! Chewy, and crumbly, and delicious! Tried this as originally posted, and making a second batch now with a little butter and apple cinnamon oatmeal instead of plain. Can't wait!
These are delicious! I always had a problem with regular peanut butter cookies being too dense and fatty. I don't miss the lack of butter or sugar! I did add vanilla because well, it wouldn't be a cookie without it :)
