I was looking for a more nutritious cookie - something like an "energy cookie," and this recipe looked like a pretty good start. I used almond butter instead of peanut butter, 1 banana & 1/2 sweet potato. (Didn't have any applesauce.) I only use the old fashioned oats - I never buy that over-processed quick-cook stuff. Didn't really measure, but stirred it all together in with a generous portion of unsweetened shredded coconut, cacao nibs, goji berries, and just a bit of maple syrup to keep it moist, and a bit of vanilla...Hmmm. I think I added chia seeds also! Two pinches of cardamom & a shake of cinnamon. I'm pleasantly surprised. :-)

Nice healthy treat. They were a little lacking in flavor so I added a few sprinkles of apple pie spice. That made them much better. Cinnamon would work too. Otherwise they taste like bananas, oatmeal, and peanut butter.

Not a bad cookie. They are easy and I had everything I needed. I would add some cinnamon or something next time for more flavor. But they made a great dairy free snack and got rid of my sweet tooth also.

This is an easy peasy, yummy vegan cookie :) It was a bit fluffy and the banana was the prominent tasting ingredient, but the kids, the dog (he's spoiled!) and I love them. You really can't beat 5 ingredients and 15 minutes for yummy goodness!!!<br/>Thanks for the recipe :)

I think maybe if you HAD to go dairy and egg free then these would be ok. They are edible. I was a little skeptical of the lack of some key ingredients but tried it anyway and I was right. Kind of gross actually. Really bad texture. I used parchment (thank God) because even still I couldn't pry them off of it. They didn't hold together well when picking them up. They tasted exactly like banana, peanut butter and oats so like I said, edible but not a good cookie. (I even added m&ms and it didn't help.)
