Kroger Oat Cookies - Help! (Update: Mystery Solved After Paper Went to Press)

Can you read the recipe off the label? I can't but maybe a sharp-eyed reader can.

If you can email me.

FLASH!!! eBay seller Don Castleman kindly copied the recipe off the label and emailed it to me!
Here it is:

2 eggs, 4 cups Rolled Oats (uncooked), 1 cup chopped nuts, pinch of salt, 2 cups flour, 1 cup cocoanut, 2 cups brown sugar, 1 teaspoon baking powder, 1 cup melted butter and lard, 1/2 teaspoon soda in 4 tablespoons hot water.

Beat eggs together and add other ingredients in the order given, mixing with each item thoroughly as added. Drop by spoonfuls on buttered tins and bake in moderate oven.

Here are the other Oat Cookie recipes using oil that came in from readers:
