    Tasted great, not too sweet. It’s a good idea to flatten them out quite well since they do not spread in the oven.

    Delicious! I added a few extras: flax meal, pumpkin seeds, maple syrup. dark chocolate chunks the last 5min.

    It was a bit too wet so I added some solely flour.also added sugar free chocolate chips—really good with the dried cranberries.

    Not too sweet, maybe add a little maple syrup if you want it sweeter. But, it's a good sugar-free recipe as-is!

    Good way to use ripe bananas. I added chocolate chips to mine to make them a little sweeter and less bland. The cranberries are a nice sweetness too.

    I’m a bit surprised by some of the negative reviews here. After all, there’s a reason why the word “cookie” is in quotes here... because it’s not an actual cookie! No eggs, no flour, no sugar, no dairy. I can’t eat eggs or dairy or most flours so this was exactly what I was looking for! No, it’s not a mint chocolate Milano but if you wanted that, you should look for a different recipe. It was still pretty good for what it is. I added about a spoonful of sugar to mine for added sweetness

    turned out decent. worked really well for taking to work for a needed healthy snack. im using a substitute of mango peach applesauce since thats what i have for this next batch, and chopping up the cranberries this time so they are all throughout the cooki.

    They’re tasty. My scoop made 2 dozen cookies so I guess I get 2 per serving!

    I put dark chocolate chips in for some added sweetness instead of cranberries. My 9 & 5 year old liked them. I like the chewiness of them. I will make these again

    OK so these weren't great. They were bland and undersweetened but because I'm someone who likes to experiment with recipes I took what I had left over after baking about half the batch and made something that i think tastes really good! So I plan to try this recipe again but with a lot of edits. Here's my modified recipe: I'll update this review once I try it. 2 c. Oats 1 Banana 1/2 c. Applesauce 1/2 c. Egg whites 1/4 c. Peanut flour 1/4 c. Dark chocolate chips/chunks 1/4 c. Dried cherries 1 tsp Molasses 1/8 tsp Pure stevia extract 1 1/2 tbsp Truvia/Pyure 2 tsp Vanilla Update: Still bland after my modifications. I'm guessing these will take at least 1/4 c. pyure and double the peanut flour to sweeten and flavor them. I might try these again with even more tweaking. If I do I'll update again.

    Pretty good ..I like them, but because they aren’t very sweet I’m sure I’ll be the only one eating them.

    These were not good at all. I followed directions perfectly. They weren’t very a bit sweet at all and the texture was like weird. But I can see how this would be the base to a cookie definitely needs more vanilla, some sugar and more cinnamon. It tastes like “nothing with a pop of cranberry”
