MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 21, 2010

I tested this recipe with the following modifications. I traded the flour with 1/2 buckwheat and 1/2 millet flours. Instead of butter, I used coconut oil.

Then with the last oats, sunflower and pecans- i processed through the food processor and used a pasty bag to drop the batter onto the cookie sheet covered with parchment paper. No Gluten, no Sat fat and less fat.
