    these look pretty awesome .. i will have to try them out , thanks for sharing the recipe 🙂

  3. My husband and I love oatmeal cookies of all types. Not only are they a healthier choice, but usually aren't as sweet as most cookies.

  4. I have not seen “caramel” here in the store except as candy squares. Could I sustitute corn syrup or molasses or a mixture of the 2?
