  1. My myriad of questions – cause I love the looks of this recipe, but would need to make some adjustments

    Can you use old-fashioned oatmeal? What happens if you leave out the brown sugar – should it be adjusted with more honey or some molasses? What kind of oil do you use?

    Can’t wait for the moving insanity to be over, and the holidays to end, so that I’ll have time to cook and junk food will go away until next year!
