These cookies are pretty darn good! I modified the recipe slightly to what ingredients I had on hand. I used white flour, 1/4cup of margarine, 3/4cup of natural crunchy peanut butter, 1/4cup of each kind of sugar and only 1/2cup of oats and they still turned out fabulous.


no offence but, other than using low cal peanut butter, this recipe is far from being low calorie!! you most definetly do not need that much sugar in cookies.
