  • Pour butter mixture into the rolled oats and stir thoroughly using a large mixing spoon until all the ingredients are combined.

  • Roll spoonfuls of mixture into balls and place on baking sheets lined with baking powder.  Allow plenty of space between the balls because the mixture will spread when it cooks.
