A great chewy, delicious cookie that has a little jolt of caffeine, making it acceptable to serve as a dessert cookie or tasty breakfast treat. Great combined with coffee or tea, and everyone finds this cookie delicious! Made with coconut, it contains no dairy for those with lactose-intolerance or sensitivity. —maiah03

What a great combination of flavors! Do you know if oat bran is similar to wheat germ? Or completely different?
