Lynne's Oatcake Recipe

Patti collected this recipe from Lynne after a recent hook-in. She said they were "GREAT cookies!"  They're healthy, too! They are made with oats and quinoa flour, which is high in protein. They include coconut oil, which, like quinoa flour, you can buy at most health-food stores.  Coconut oil got a bad name in the 70s because so much hydrogenated coconut oil was used in processed foods.  However, the virgin oil from health food stores is fine in moderation; in fact, one study found that non-hydrogenated, virgin coconut oil may have anti-viral properties.
