SO HOW'D IT GO?

Great base recipe! Added a banana, chia, and pumpkin seeds and cut the sugar a bit. These'll be great for fast breakfasts.

This was bad, like a chewy tastless biscuit.    It needs a quarter cup of canola oil or almond butter maybe, I'm not sure if it's worth expereimenting with even.   But this bad!

I used maple syrup instead of brown sugar. These are wonderful. Perfect to bring to my DD's playgroup tomorrow.

I was searching for a "healthy" cookie recipe because my toddler is a super-picky eater but loves cookies of course.  This recipe is a hit in my house!  I reduced the sugar, using just a slightly heaping 1/4 cup of brown sugar and no white sugar.  I also used whole wheat flour, added the 1/2 tsp of cinnamon, and reduced salt to 1/4 tsp.  These definitely don't have the consistency of regular cookies, but we don't mind.  My 2-year-old son loves them and I don't mind giving them to him for breakfast.  My junk-food-loving, health-food-skeptic husband likes them too.  He and his best friend scarfed down a bunch of them after the gym one day!  That said, I wouldn't bring them to a party unless I knew that someone there was vegan or dieting - I'd bring a more traditional cookie.

These are wicked good! I made them yesterday.

I made a double batch because I live in a house of 4 rabid cookie eaters! I only made a few changes. Applesauce went bad, so I threw it out and used sugar-free apple butter. It worked perfectly. Didn't have raisins, so I chopped up some dates and threw that in. I didn't double the amount of sugar, I added a little extra brown sugar and that was all. It was the perfect amount of sweetness. The dough was really tough to stir by hand, so I handed the bowl to my dad and let him beat it into submission. I followed the cooking directions and they came out very, very well. I'm the only vegan in the house and everyone loved them. Will use again!

This recipe earns the highests compliments based on the simple fact my audience ate them all in less than 24 hours. They couldn't tell that the cookies were vegan either.  :) I like how the recipe is fairly versatile as well, I think just about any dried fruit would work well in these cookies.

Ok, scratch the 'cakey' thing I said.  I just ate like 4 and my stomac is going to explode.  :o They are really filling.  They are sooooo good.

Not as good as my usual 1-cup-of-margarine-oatmeal-cookie-recipe, but definately more healthy, and still tasty.  I also added a bit more raisins, cinnamon and vanilla.  They are pretty yummy but a little 'cakey' compared to the ones I usually make.  My kids didnt even seem to notice they were not the ones I usually make.  I'll make this a regular at home, since I am trying to loose weight but have a sweet tooth.  Thanks for a good substitute recipe!
