Great with Cinnamon and Nutmeg added. :)
I really liked these and found them to be an easy and healthful treat. Made them as stated without the optional raisins and added a dash or two of cinnamon for color and flavor and a dash of stevia for additional sweetness. The cookies themselves are a wee bit crispy on the outside with a tender soft interior; a portable version of baked oatmeal. Planning to pack them as breakfast cookies to enjoy with my morning yougurt. Will these please everyone? Maybe not. But if you are looking for something simple, not overly sweet and these will do the trick quite nicely.
Originally I added raisins and cinnamon for 2/3 of the recipe, which yielded 18 cookies. Today I made 2/3 of the recipe again, but this time I added 3 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder, lots of chopped honey dates, and some stevia. Although both were good, the ones with dates were definitely better. These were soft delicious cookies that I really enjoyed, and I can guarantee I'll make these again.
