For “cookies” – drop onto waxed paper or aluminum foil coated with Pam.
For “bars” – line a pan (I use an 7” frying pan) with aluminum foil and spray with cooking spray. Put mixture into the pan and press it down. Cut into bars when cool.
You can eat them as soon as they're cool enough to handle!
For a special treat: Break into smaller pieces and sprinkle over yogurt or frozen yogurt.DAIRY FREE: Use a dairy-free margarine such as Smart Balance or vegetable oil in place of the butter; use soy or almond milk in place of the regular milk.
