Oat crunchies

When my older kids were younger I would often whip up a batch or two of oat cookies to use as breakfast bars on the busy week days. When you are feeding a large family you need to get creative to stretch your budget and resources. These make a delicious treat to add to a lunch box or as an afternoon treat.
