Delicious I may add a little more cranberries and nuts next time!

they probably work with oatmeal, but the consistency with old fashioned oats is just strange and I had to bake it for about 45 mins to get them to be a bit solid

I Didn't have all ingredients so I substituted part of the oats with almond meal and the applesauce with my daughters smoothie. It turned out really good!

I had to change this recipe up a lot due to not having everything I need it on hand. I didn't like the consistency of the cookies before putting them in the oven so I actually ended up adding flour and baking powder overall they turned out good and healthy though.

It was really easy to make, but I wasn't a huge fan of them. My toddler wouldnt eat them either. I might try making with peanut butter one more time to see if it is better.

Very delicious! It was very easy to make and the flavors were wonderful. You could really feel the apple sauce, raisins and all other yumminess. Definitely will make this again!

Very good! Easy and ready in no time. Used almonds instead of walnuts and sultanas (golden raisins). Smells great when baking.

It turn so well and it's so tasty!! I love this and I will definitely do it again. I change the walnut for some dry cranberries, blueberry,cherry and raisin. It was so good with all this dry fruit

This recipe was healthy and good. I used whole oats and followed it, but baked it a little longer to get it a little crisper. I would not call it a cookie because it seemed more like a granola wafer. "Cookie" says sweet to me.

Perfect! I added coconut flakes and tossed in some vegan chocolate chips, and some ground flax. Love that its like having oatmeal on the go.
Andrea M. 28 Aug 2016
Turned out amazing. I added a bit more banana and oatmeal since I might have overdone it with cinnamon but still came out perfect.

So easy and healthy! I always have these ingredients available and perfect as part of the kids breakfast.
Lynda H. 24 Mar 2016
Love these! I've made twice and all coworkers with kids wanted the recipe too. I use a small scoop to make more of a ball and they keep their shape. I also add some vegan protein powder for an energy snack.
