Gluten free recipe, Peter suggested I should promote to BJ's as new pizookie flavor called "Oats and Shit." When I first started making these, I didn't follow the instructions exactly and did not food process the oats (due to my lack of machinery). So when they started baking, they looked really mushy like they would not solidify into a cookie texture. However, after baking for the directed time, and letting them rest on the baking sheet, they molded into cookies, with nice crispy edges that had a carmelized taste. I'd like to brag and say that rumor has it, Anthony said they were the best fucking cookies he has ever had.
