The Cookie to Beat All Cookies

Like chocolate chips? Peanut butter? M&M's? Oatmeal? What not combine them all in a recipe that is sure to be a favorite with everyone! Oh yeah, and these are really good with milk...

My friend from church gave me this recipe, and it is truly amazing. Everyone loves these cookies. One interesting contains no flour. I guess the oatmeal take the place of flour.

I'm making a huge batch of these to take to a homeschool gathering at my parent's house tonight. I'm not technically a homeschool student anymore, but who says being a homeschooler is about age and grade level? I think it's more about the attitude toward learning. Anyway, tonight sounds like too much fun to miss... Justin is in charge of games for the kids, and fun stuff like tug of war, sack racing, and apple bobbing is in store for tonight!
