I have to admit, I like these cookies. I like the nutty and oaty flavor of them.
I tried several recipes over some time and ended up with this one. A mix of several recipes and experiments.

You need very fine oatmeal. I do not get this here. What I did is I took steal cut oats and oat bran and grind  it in my high speed blender.

It is important to roll out the dough very thin. This supports to develop the flavor. I also prick the cookies with a fork to prevent any bubbles to develop during the baking process.
They bake only 5-10 minutes at 175C.
