These were great! I left out the cocoa powder and they are a delicious healthy snack! Thanks for sharing!
These were okay, we found them to be a bit rubbery and they don't store well. The flavor however is very good.
these cookies are one of my favorite go to's! The options are really endless. I used dried cranberries instead of dates, but almost any dried chopped fruit would work. To lower the carbohydrate factor, i used a combo of oats and puffed brown rice cereal (easy to find near the natural cerals- even at wal-mart!). everytime i make these, they dissappear!
Excellent cookies! I will make these many times. I didn't have a cup of fresh dates, so I used a cup of dried dates. I put in the cocoa powder, but I couldn't really detect the taste. Then again, I haven't tried the cookies yet without the cocoa powder. The only problem with these cookies is that I can't stop eating them because they taste so good. This is a healthy and tasty recipe that everyone should know about.
I had 2 frozen bananas that I wanted to use, so this was the perfect vessel for that. I also used 1 egg instead of the 2 egg whites. I love the fact that they are sweet but not too sweet. Nice chewy cookies.
Fantastic recipe! I've been trying to cut down my glucose intake recently (for fear of impending diabetes) and found these incredibly satifying when i craved something sweet, especially with a cup of tea (I'm british, of course). Top recipe! pretty much guilt free snacking! Definitely a keeper.
Much better than I thought they'd be. Perfect cookie to use with Silpat. If you've gotta have a cookie and/or chocolate but can't afford the calories, these are for you.
These cookies are my perfect type of treat!! I loved the flavors of the date and oat mixture - no sugar is needed or missed. I used old-fashioned oats, the optional cocoa and currents (they DID look a bit like a chocolate candy cookie...LOL :) - Great recipe, Thanks ladypit!! These will be a new addition to my favorite cookies to make list.
These cookies were bland and rubbery rather than crunchy. My two year old liked them but no one else did.
I'm always looking for recipes without added sugar, and these were a wonderful treat. The taste was similar to a banana cookie Larabar that I'm fond of, but these cookies are certainly more affordable! I'm planning on making them again -- perhaps with craisins and walnuts in place of the raisins and cocoa. Thanks for the great recipe!
