    1. Stella – I haven’t tried it with natural – but I am sure it would work. If you experiment – please let us know how it turns out!

  1. I’ve got to brag on these cookies! They are my personal favorite! I’ve made them several times now! I use white chocolate chips and whatever cereal I happen to have on hand. Awesome! Now, I’m a big fan of this site, I must admit. See, I’ve been using OAMM for almost two years now. I LOVE y’all! I’ve been a single mom since last summer and this website had helped me so much with my grocery budget ($50/week)! I have plenty to feed my family and always enough to gift a few meals a month. It’s kinda become our little family outreach ministry. I stumbled on this site when I was looking for a new baby gift for my best friend. I used the site (before memberships) to create a month of meals to gift her and her hubby for when the baby came. She ended up really sick just before the Emily was born, then had to deliver via c-section (in January in Delaware). The meals were such a blessing to her new little family during a rough time. I just want to tell y’all thank you for all you do! We have a home business, a super tight budget, and I homeschool my oldest and I don’t think we would be nearly as successful without OAMM on our side. I’m so grateful God brought me to your site when He did! I tell all my friends and family about OAMC and frequently share the recipe links. Thank you again :). Oh, and these cookies ROCK! πŸ˜‰

    1. Kimberly! Way to make us tear up at the end of the day. It’s stories like yours that keep us going on our hardest days! We appreciate you as a member and part of our community. So happy to be a part of your amazing ministry.

  2. I just made these…well I attempted to, anyway. They would not stick together enough to make balls. I used coconut oil instead of butter, but I wouldn’t think that would cause any problem.
    Any suggestions?

    1. Hi Janell, I wonder if the coconut oil was just a little too wet and oily if you did an even swap with the butter. I think next time I would do just 1 Tablespoon of coconut oil and maybe even up the dry ingredients a little to see if that helps.
