The butterscotch flavor is nice for a change, even though it could be subbed for a different flavor. Just a nice flavored, moist oatmeal cookie.

So Good

These cookies are so moist and gooey. I love that they're made with oatmeal, because I can get extra whole grains into my boys through a treat.

These cookies were SO easy to make and are absolutely delicious! I made a few changes to the recipe, but it still turned out great! I only put in a stick and a half of butter and used 1/3 c. sugar instead of Splenda because I did not have any. Overall I LOVE this recipe!!
