    Beautiful cookies, I added 1/4 cup of sunflower, pumpkin & Chai seeds & 1 cup of cranberries, absolutely delicious  -  28 Feb 2015


    These were lovely. I cut the sugar down to 1 cup, and added 1/2 cup sultanas.  -  07 Jul 2015


    Really good recipe! I used half butter & half applesauce, 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1/2 cup Splenda & cut down on the oats. I also omitted the water since I saw no need for it. I got about 30 from this. Thanks so much!  -  23 Feb 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
