    The recipe looks wonderful!
    There doesn't appear to be a lot of liquid...is the 1/3 cup oatmeal
    cooked or is that dry? Also, if it is dry, what works better, one
    minute oats or five minute kind?

    Hi Patrice!

    The liquid is the egg. It really binds those oat flakes together, and
    you want the mixture to be thick. The oatmeal is uncooked, and I use
    the 1 minute, quick cooking variety. I've never tried the 5 minute
    stuff.

    The cookie (I used to call it a pancake) has a nice, nutty texture.
    Come to think of it, you could add chopped nuts to make it more
    interesting if you wanted to.

    I hope you'll enjoy this!

    Hi Carol,

    What size skillet do you use? I'd love to try this! (And if I tell my son
    that I got the recipe from the lady who told me how to make those peanut
    butter-chocolate-Wheat Thins thingie, he'll be all over it, too!)

    Thx,
    Chris

    Nice to see you back Dams :) I'm wondering if honey would work in place
    of the Splenda something we don't use and we avoid white sugar. Is the
    end result on the dry side or moist side? Maybe I'll just try it and
    see what happens. You know if you added a few chopped nuts and raisens
    it would be really great but I don't know how that would work with your
    diabetes.

    WOW! this sounds great! and i would think you could make it and take
    it on the run. i would not use the splenda for myself, tho. honey or
    organic sugar instead. and you could use all kinds of fresh or dried
    fruits and nuts...depending on what available that day. thanks for the
    great recipe, damsel! myraide

    I'll certainly try this! What is the skillet diameter? Do you use a
    non-stick skillet? 1/2 tsp butter doesn't sound like a lot for frying
    something with an egg.

    Lead me not into temptation... I can find it myself!

    I use my 8 inch skillet. They are about the size of a quarter
    pounder. A little bit bigger. I'm going to make the stuff again
    tonight, but make two smaller ones. One for a bedtime snack, then the
    other for tomorrow's breakfast.

    Give your son a hug from the butterfingers lady. :)

    I'm just sorta back, Patches, but thanks for the howdy. I have my
    newsgroup font set pretty large, and still have trouble reading it.
    It'll pass.

    Honey would be fine, I'm sure. It's right between moist and dry. A
    lot depends on how long you fry them.

    The diabetes is the reason I'm making two small ones instead of one
    regular tonight. My blood sugar skyrocketed after I ate this.
    Hopefully, my doc will adjust my meds so I can eat these whole. Many
    people have this kind of reaction to oatmeal. But my doc wants me to
    eat oats, etc. In the meantime, I'm going to keep the blood sugar as
    reasonable as possible.

    I've always eaten mine with a fork because I glaze the top with
    butter. So I'm not positive that they wouldn't fall apart in your
    hand, but give it a shot. What's there to lose? An option would be
    to make a couple smaller cookies. They might hold up better, and
    they'd probably cook faster if you're in a hurry to get going.

    Steel-cut whole oatmeal has a much lower glycemic index than instant
    oatmeal. You'd have to use it pre-cooked; the brief saute in the
    original recipe would not suffice. It sounds like a good way to use up
    leftover slow cooked oatmeal.

    I use an 8-inch skillet. It's copper-bottomed Revere Ware, and is not
    non-stick. It's a cool pan. I make omelettes for Crash almost every
    day, and they don't stick at all. I just slide them out of the pan
    and onto his plate. It's magic! <G>

    I use a teaspoon of butter to glaze the top, but 1 teaspoon for
    frying. If you want to use more, you certainly can. I'm watching my
    saturated fats, so I'm going pretty light on the butter. I can't
    bring myself to use margarine. I just can't. So I use butter
    minimally.

    I'm not familiar with the concept of leftover McCann's. LOL!

    I have a can of them, and ate some last night, resulting in my lowest
    fasting BG since I started keeping track again. I'll try the
    overnight method tonight. That way, I can make my cookie right away,
    before the evil oats beckon me to the Dark Side.

    Thanks for the great idea!

    Of a truth, Carol, the butter is (marginally) better for you than
    margarine. (no pun intended). Have you tried using olive oil for the
    pan, or butter-flavored spray?

    I didn't hear about your vision problems, but I hope they are either
    moderating or under control, or healing. (whichever gives the best
    result).
