    These cookies are amazing. They are delicious, fluffy, and (best of all!) pumpkin. If I make anything to bring to work, these are always it - I actually get requests for them because people love them. I always make them with white chocolate chips. - 9/17/15

  • totally fabulous! I made a few changes: 1 cup sugar only; whole wheat flour; 1 cup raisins added. I made them larger, so they were a little 'cakier'. Thanks so much for sharing these! - 10/7/10

  • These are amazing!! I used 1 1/2 cups of chocolate chips and used 1/2 oat flour and 1/2 regular flour. I also made them a bit bigger but they were still very reasonable in calories. Thanks for the great recipe!!!! - 1/27/10

  • Raisins work as a good chip substitute as well. 15 min exactly was perfect (just browning on the bottom). My roommate stole 4 before I could get them off the pan. Definite win! - 12/20/09
