"Sorry to be the outlier here, but I did not like this recipe at all. The baking temperature was missing from the recipe, or at least I couldn't find it, but a little research on another website fixed that. The cookies just didn't have much taste and I wouldn't call them cookies. They tasted very much like a bran muffin that you make because it's healthy. It's OK and non-offensive, but not great and certainly nothing to tempt me to sneak just one more before bedtime. Maybe upping the spices as others have mentioned will improve them."
"I added extra spices as the other reviewers recommended and regretted it. I would stick to the recipe if I made these again. These are more like trail bars than cookies."
"I make these for my 1yr old so he can have his oatmeal on the go. He loves them and I do to."
"Wonderful! I used Splenda brown sugar, unsweetened applesauce, and followed directions as written. These cookies aren't overly sweet as some are, but they have lots of flavor!. Loved them!! Thanks!"
"I took advice from prevous reviews and added more spices and made sure to flatten the cookies out before baking. My results were excellent! I got exactly 18 soft, not-too-sweet cookies. Baking time was right on. Thanks for posting this recipe!"
"These had a nice texture, soft and chewy. I would add a little more cinnamon and nutmeg, though."
"These were so nice and soft and chewy. Since these were destined for my holiday trays for diabetic friends, I made them smaller and ended with 25 cookies. Added extra cinnamon to the batch and did a course chop on the cranberries to make sure every bite had a bit. These do not spread or move in baking so be certain to flatten or shape your tops before baking. Thanks for the recipe."
"So good! I increased the ginger and nutmeg slightly, although these cookies only have a tablespoons butter they still baked out nicely, I add in raisins in place of the dried cranberries, thanks for sharing MG!...Kitten:)"
