This is a kind of "open pie".
This is a very unintimidating recipe for an inexperienced baker. The ingredients are very common, simple to work with and healthy. No sugar is added, which I like.
This kind of recipe directly leads into using more fruits and vegetables in baking. I could easily see shredded carrots in a similar recipe.
This is like a good oatmeal, but in cookie form. I've eaten this for breakfast!
