I gave it an average rating because I deferred so much from the recipe.
I used:
1/3 c natural peanut butter
2 T brown sugar - wanted them chewier, but still wanted to keep sugars lower than most cookies
2 brown bananas - had them in my freezer, they are sweeter when brown, so it gave more flavor
1 egg - for leavening, I wanted these lighter than a granola bar and also wanted to add protein
1 1/3 cup oats
1 cup whole wheat flour
1/4 flax seed - for additional fiber
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cups chopped pecans - again for more protein
1/4 cup mini chocolate chips - because I had them in the cupboard
and in the final batch I baked I threw in some raisins - that was a winner!

Baked as it said and these were rather good.
