Would there be any difference if you used 1% milk?

Haven't made them yet but will give it a try. They look great. I love chocolate and coconut. For the person who is concerned about oats not being gluten free. I get mine at Trader Joe's and they are definitely gluten free as are the ones at Earth Fare, Whole Foods and even at Kroger and Walmart. Don't miss out on a really healthy and delicious food because of gluten because everywhere I buy them they are gluten free.

Didn't work for me. The cookie came out runnier than it should be and the white chocolate drizzle burnt and didn't melt.

I'm not sure why the first response was about gluten in oatmeal, but there is DEFINITELY gluten in oatmeal! I haven't had it in 25 yrs because I've had Celiac that long!!

Really good cookie. I'd made a variation of these before, but my old recipe had no coconut. I added extra oats to make the cookie stiffer; that's what I'd done with my old recipe so I knew it would work fine for these. The extra oats is the key to the stiffer, less sticky cookie, although they do need to be kept refrigerated.

These were great, but need to stay chilled or they start to get sticky. They are simple enough that my 6 year old was able to make these mostly by herself. We put some mini marshmallows in and used crunchy peanut butter. I didn't have any wax paper, but they popped right off of a glass baking dish.

These are really delicious - I made them for a party, and they vanished! However, I followed the directions to the letter, and while they seemed to be set after refrigeration, they quickly became sticky at room temperature in the airtight container. They were not so soft that they fell apart, but they were nowhere near as firm in appearance as the cookies in the photo.

These are fantastic! What can I use in place of the oats to make them gluten free?
