   *  Delicious high-fiber oatmeal drop cookies -- These oatmeal cookies are
   for cookie lovers to splurge with. Not only are they great tasting, but
   they are very high in fiber content and easy to make. The recipe is mine
   and is based on several different ideas in different cookbooks as how to
   best to make them. In fun, I call them “Invisible Oatmeal Cookies” because
   they are wont to disappear whenever unguarded. Enjoy.
   *  If any children (young or old) live within smelling distance of your
   stove, make extra cookies for when they suddenly show up for an unexpected
   *  The recipe may be halved, doubled, or whatever without harm.  The batter
   as well as the baked cookies freeze well. Thaw batter on countertop. Thaw
   cookies either in microwave or in oven.
