Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Melt butter in a microwave-safe mixing bowl or in a large saucepan.
Add all remaining ingredients, but watch the milk because you may not need all of it.
Let stand for about 5 minutes, until oats are soft.
Lightly grease a cookie sheet or line with nonstick foil or parchment paper.
For each cookie, spoon out about 1 T. of dough and drop it onto the greased or lined cookie sheet.
Bake the cookies for 15 to 20 minutes.
Let cool on the cookie sheet for about 1 minute.
Move the cookies to wire racks or a towel to cool.
