How funny to mix in "flower concoction". What other spelling errors are there? I have never put wheat germ in a cookie recipe. I'm guessing it tastes pretty food. What are single acting or double acting baking powder? I thought baking powder was baking powder. I like oatmeal cookies, especially when they are chewy.

Looks like a good recipe, but I'll use the flour called for in the ingredient list rather than the flower in the instructions. )
