  • Good
    The flavor is really good, but the macaroons don't stick together very well. I had to scrape them off the pan, and most of them will probably be used as an oatmeal crumb topping on some yogurt, but I'm sure it'll be yummy that way, too! - 12/16/09

  • May people do not consider oatmeal to be gluten free I tried this recipe and substituted Quinoa cereal instead of oatmeal and it worked out great! - 6/7/07

  • Bad
    These "ccokies" spread so much and so thin that I couldn't get them off the sheet as cookies. They ended up be a crumb topping on fruit. Not recommended - 4/17/07
