Protein-packed natural peanut butter and oats form the base of these chewy retro treats drizzled with dark chocolate. They're delicious, gluten-free, and best of all, super easy to make.

    I was about a tsp shy on unsalted butter, so I compensated with coconut oil. then I added 1/3 cup shredded coconut to the oats. I opted out of chocolate drizzle.

    I agree about the inability to get them to hold together. I also used natural peanut butter, but I use it for my peanut butter cookies without a problem. I'm going to try to salvage this by adding more peanut butter. It seems to me the oats are the problem. Not going to waste time & ingredients again.

    Was this recipe tested? I followed it to the letter and it w ould not stick together, it was way too dry. I had to add more butter and honey to get them to form a shape. Even with the added honey they are not very sweet. Perhaps because I used natural peanut butter.

    I did a calculation using the exact ingredients above and for 40 " logs". They each contain 89 calories per log, with 5.1 g of fat, 1.6 g saturated fats, 3.4 g cholesterol, 8.2 g of carbs, 3.3 g of sugar, 1.1 g of fiber and 3.7 g of protein. Lastly, 43.7 mg sodium using unsalted butter. I think this is very accurate, but if anyone calculates it differently, then please feel free to add your post.

    Is there an alternative to "baking the oats" that doesn't involve baking? Would love to forward this to my condo-living friends :-)

    Excellent recipe! To those of you that complained about the baking instructions... The only thing that was baked was the oats, not the cookies.

    Is there a recipe for the other cookies on the plate?

    I SURE wish we could get nutritional values on all the recipes. Would be critical to know the fats, cholesterol, sugar content for example; much less the calories. Still asking for this...

    The oats may also be toasted in a cast iron skillet on the stove top, if you don't want to use the oven at all.
