I'm sure this exact recipe will work up fine. However, being fond of variations even of a favorite, I'm likely on some later occasion to add rolled oats and/or peanut butter. Throwing in a little powdered cocoa now and then wouldn't hurt either. No telling what next! Though I would tell people to be sure to powder the oats and even maybe give it a little longer to set if they do. Hmmm... I can think of half a dozen riffs on this basic recipe already. Thanks for the inspiration.
