Gluten-free Muesli Cookies

This is a simple and delicious gluten-free recipe from http://www.taste.com.au.  You can use dark chocolate instead of white  if  preferred or carob.  Makes 35 cookies (or biscuits as we call them in Oz).   Tastes great, even if you are not gluten intolerant!   You may have to hide them.
