I didn't have any applesauce when I found this recipe. Instead I used some mushed banana and soymilk. I also added some walnuts and a little more flour. They turned out a little like banana bread cookies. Great recipe!

These definitely have potential, hence the 3 stars. I agree that these are way too sweet, so as I start tweaking this recipe for myself, I'll start by cutting the sugar to at most 1/4 cup. I'll also incorporate some whole wheat flour, either substituting ww for 1/2 the white, or just adding some. I was attracted to this recipe because other reviewers likened them to scones, which I love but are usually so fattening So in an effort to make them even more scone-like, I'll probably increase the overall flour to applesauce ratio to get a drier dough, and I think I'll try baking them a little longer than the 10 min specified. I only got 9 "drops" total! and they weren't very big at all -- about 2" diameter. Finally, I'll probably add some walnuts or sunflower seeds. But like I said, these definitely hae potential, and I'll be making them again. Thanks.
