agave oat cookies
okay so i was like, agave oat cookies. hmm...I guess it's a simple recipe...mmmm maybe I'll try it...after making them i was like these look kinda weird, but i shud try them @ least...omg these are really good!
they are almost like granola bars. I omitted the raisins and i didn't have wheat germ so I used flax seed instead. it seemed pretty much the same, but then again, I guess i wouldn't know. but anyways...they were actually pretty good. I wasn't sure if I was supposed to flatten the cookies, or if the cookies would flatten by themselves so I didn't do anything, I just plopped the dough on the cookie sheet and shoved it in the oven. Halfway through the time though, I looked inside the oven, and what did i see, round balls of oaty cookie dough still in its round form! I flattened a few cookies and left the rest alone. The cookies were like a chewy granola bar either in a ball form or in a flat disk. Surprisingly though they were pretty tasty!
