  • Incredible!

    Very delicious, but I followed the ingredients under Ingredient Details. Not all are listed in the main view of the recipe. I also added an egg because I was skeptical that they would hold together. They are very tasty. - 10/27/08

  • I was going to make these, but your ingredient details (used for nutritional calculations) don't match your ingredient list on this page? Buttermilk? Vanilla? Nutmeg? Cinnamon? Which is the real recipe? - 9/1/09

    Sorry about that- I fixed it. Took me a while, sorry about that as well. :) This recipe is a work in progress; I change it up about every time I make it.

  • The recipie was a little confusing, but the cookies are good, filling. I sued dried pineapple for the fruit, will add ginger next time. - 3/4/09

  • I made these last night and didn't think they were anything like Starbucks' version. They do taste very healthy, and my 4-yr-old actually liked them b/c he doesn't get lots of sugar, but I wouldn't make them again without adding sugar and some oil/butter. - 1/29/09

  • I made these, but omitted the apricots. They are not very sweet, but they are filling. I have one with some yogart for breakfast. Nummy! - 1/23/09

  • Buttermilk, cinnamon and nutmeg are included in the NI, but not in the actual recipe. I think best to try with what's listed for NI first, and adjust from there. - 12/28/08

  • Really great recipe - but I misread the ingredients and used 1/2 cup flour instead of 1 1/2 cup. I like the results better with the lower flour amount and it isn't too dry. Tomorrow I'm trying pumpkin puree instead of applesauce. Thanks!! - 11/7/08
