pretty good. i added about 1/4 tsp salt - i felt they needed that - i also used vanilla soy milk halved the sugar and used liquid stevia in place of the other half cup of sugar... these were like very soft cookies - i felt like i could have even made them into muffins. they could probably use some raisins or choc. chips or nuts or something else.

The idea is innovative but the reality falls short of the dream in an "it's the thought that counts" type cookie. This recipe has promise IF modified. As is it is bland is it's taste. The appearance and texture are pleasing: a warm brown color and soft center. I split the batter into three sections on my first try to experiment with it since others reviewed it as "bland." I made one batch "as is " one batch with cinnamon in place of nutmeg and one batch with fresh plump raisins. All three batches still needed a little something different such as white sugar. But I'll have to find out how that turns out next time. For now I give it three stars because you're certainly on to something here. I look forward to reading future reviews with other variations.

Actually pretty good with a few modifications. I added cinnamon instead nutmeg also added dried cranberries and walnuts also a few tablespoons of honey. Cooked them a little longer on 350 before switching to 325 but a nice healthy treat! Read More

mine turned out like little weird pancakes. Although it might be my fault I experimented with applesauce as half the vegetable oil and did soymilk instead. They tasted alright though. Read More

I agree with everything BusyDad reviewed (see below). He said it perfectly. I love the idea of healthy treats but this was just okay. I added finely chopped salted peanuts and mini chocolate chips to mine (upping the calories and downing the healthiness) but they just werent anything special. I may try to tweak this recipe but probably not. Read More
