    I wanted to make half of the recipe. Because of the reviews, I cut everything in half instead of the flour. I did use 1/3 cup of flour The batter held up in the oven and the cookies were great.

    I've made this recipe before but beware, they'll come out to thin and not hold together if you don't make a few adjustments. I cut the recipe in half, but I kept the flour amount the same. I used an ice cream scoop because I like my cookies bigger so it made a dozen. Also, cut the baking time to no longer than 13 minutes tops. And yes, cool properly on the pans and then on the rack.

    A cooling rack is a must. First pan-full were cooled on the counter and they crumbled apart, then I cooled on pan for 1-2 minutes, and then rack until completely cool. The best! Creates a large batch and are crowd pleasers everytime!

    1 star for this recipe! Made it from her cookie book and they melted to flat, paper-thin, crisp over-done cookies and I use the word cookie lightly. I wondered how 1/3 cup flour would bind these together and the dough was delish and thick like a normal drop cookie recipe, but a complete failure to bake. The min 15 minutes was too long as well. I looked up other oatmeal cookie recipes of hers and found one that is identical except its 1 cup plus 1 tbsp of flour and 1/2 cup of wheat germ.

    Ugh. I was so frustrated with this recipe. The dough was DELICIOUS but the cookies came out flat and crumbly. I should have added more flour and definitely will next time if I decide to bake these again. I would also try refrigerating the dough as others have mentioned. Disappointed.

    I made this recipe with my Certified GF Oats and palm sugar and it was terrific. For the bit of whole wheat flour, I sub'd sweet sorghum flour (gf) and found that I needed to add something more like 1/2 a cup so that the batter didn't look quite a wet. I also subbed out part of the peanuts for some chopped dried cherries and only had on hand white chocolate chips. The resulting cookies were delish!

    I didn't read the reviews first but my cookies turned out well in the end. I was suspicious about the icing-like consistency of the dough despite using whole wheat bread flour so I kept a watchful eye on the oven. At 350F cookies browned quickly w soft middle & slight burnt taste that I actually like in PB cookies, but not everyone does. I let the rest of the dough sit overnight to hydrate the oats, made smaller cookies, baked at 325. Glorious. Will make these again with a pinch more salt.

    These cookies are a total failure. There was not enough flower so they turned into crepes. I added some all Purpose flower on the last 3 batched and they were better. If there was 1 cup of All Purpose flower to go along with the 1/4 cup of Whole Wheat flower it would have worked. Sorry Martha you get a big fat " F" in the baking department.
