Flourless Oatmeal Peanut Butter Cookies
These cookies get raves from our guests and lots of requests for the recipe. They are great for the health-conscious people wishing to avoid white flour. Trying
to keep them in the cookie jar and away from my husband is the challenge. -- April Tubbs, Adrounie House
