I have to say when I was mixing this it smelled so good! When I opened the oven when they were done, it smelled so good! Unfortunately, they smelled better than they tasted. I mean their edible and my daughter liked them. So at least I know I can pawn them off on her in her lunch pale. I added raisins which I am glad I did because they would of had no sweetness to them. I also used apple sauce instead of the oil. Sadly, I wont be making these again.
