  • I've tried and they never turned out. They were really sticky and too soft.

    Would you like to share your recipe?

  • I found a great recipe this summer. They're not too hard unless you overbake them, and they're not too sweet but they are good. Not sticky, either.
    * 4 cups oatmeal
    * 2 cups flour
    * 1 cup coconut
    * 1/4 c. sugar
    * 2 tsp. baking soda
    * 1/2 tsp. salt
    * 3/4 c. vegetable oil
    * 3/4 c. honey (OR 1/2 c. honey & 1/4 c. molasses OR 1/2 c. honey & 1/4 c. light corn syrup)
    * raisins, chocolate chips, sunflower seeds, dried fruits, nuts....whatever you'd like to add

    Mix dry ingredients well. Add oil and honey. Mix well. Get your fingers in there and mix it until all is blended and slightly sticky. Add raisins or whatever you like. Press firmly into jelly roll pan (12 x 15 or close to that). Bake 15 to 20 minutes at 350°. They will look puffy and soft when you take them out. Do not let them turn brown or they will be very hard. Cut into squares/rectangles while still warm.
