These are very nice breakfast cookies. I substituted applesauce for the prune puree. Also, I made the cookies a bit smaller, so the yield was 11. My kids really like the taste, and I appreciate how healthy the cookies are. Thank you!
Great recipe! My kids love them anytime! I used cinnamon applesauce in place of the pune puree and left out the cinnamon.
Oh Wow! Let me first start off by stating the changes I made: I used 5 tablespoons applesauce + 1/2 teaspoon honey and omitted the date puree. I eliminated the additional 2 tablespoons oats because of this omission. I didnt use raisins, and i used 1/3 cup mini semi sweet chocolate chips. I added 1/8 teaspoon salt, which I would recommend. I made 18 mini cookies instead of 6 large ones. And My-oh-my right out of the oven these were irrisistable! I will edit my review tomorrow when i taste them the next day. One problem i hit was that the batter was very dry. So i added some skim milk and it moistened up. It was still crumbly, but they rolled into balls after that. I made your pumpkin breakfast cookies, and they were good, but these were over the top! Wow. Definetly a keeper! UPDATE: The next day these still are soft and delicious. They gradually sog up a bit though, so eat them up fast!
