"Even picky preschoolers, like my son, devour these wholesome treats sprinkled with cinnamon and packed with raisins," assures Trina Boitnott of Boones Mill, Virginia. "Washed down with a glass of juice or milk, the cookies are also great as an on-the-go breakfast."

"This has become a go to recipe.

I use the base and switch between almond and vanilla extract depending on what type of fruit I use (raspberries w/ almond are yum).
The recipe divides nicely too if you only want to make a few (it's hard not to eat them all!).
If you do dishes by hand, it's easy to whip up a small batch and then do the dishes by hand while they bake. You then have a great warm evening treat with tea :)"

"I made these to take to a function to serve with coffee. I was skeptical after reading the recipe, but after reading the reviews, I thought I would make them. The taste was okay, but they looked so unappetizing I decided not to take them. I will not be making these again."

"I MADE THESE YESTERDAY. I DON'T LIKE TO USE ALOT OF BUTTER IN A RECIPE, SO THIS WAS A REAL NICE CHANGE. I USED COCONUT OIL INSTEAD OF CANOLA,MUCH BETTER HEALTHWISE. I ALSO ADDED ORANGE ZEST, AND BAKED THEM ON A SILICONE SHEET. THEY WERE WONDERFUL, AND CRUNCHY. I DID BAKE THEM ABOUT 10 MINUTES LONGER THAN STATED. MY HUSBAND LOVED THEM!"

"I made these delightful cookies on a whim as I had all the ingredients on hand. I did add 2T more brown sugar to make them a bit more sweet, 2T more flour and 2T more raisins so that they would still hold together well on the baking sheet. They came out as big as the scoop I put on the baking sheet yielding 14 large cookies. My husband LOVED them and was surprised when I told him that there was no butter and little flour as he is a gourmet cook. I will definitely make them again. Next time for my adult daughters and young grandchildren!"

"Awesome!! I substituted the oil with applesauce and used the whole egg instead of just the white. Also for little extra sweetness I added a 1/3 cup of mini chocolate chips. Very tasty cookie!!"

"I was a little skeptical at first when the cookies didn't seem to hold together well when putting them on the baking sheet, but they came out great! I do think they could be a little sweeter though."

"I made some changes to make this recipe diabetic friendly. Substituted Splenda for brown sugar and Stevia for sugar. Also cut back on the oil and added applesauce. With substitutions batter was wet so added a little extra oats. Cookies came out moist and chewy. Baking batches as gifts for friends."
