I make these at least once a week for my husband, David. He takes one in his lunch every week and never gets tired of them. I love providing him with something so healthy to snack on that doesn't taste low-fat. —Jessica VanLaningham, Cockeysville, Maryland

MY REVIEW

Made these yesterday. I had to substitute the butter for applesauce (husband and I have dairy allergy) and these were really good. I did have to bake them a bit longer because of the sub. Next time I make them, I'm subbing peanut butter for the butter and adding mini chocolate chips to send to my daughter in college. Thanks for the great recipe.

Really yummy. Easy to prepare with my children. A big hit with my family. We added sunbutter and wheat germ in place of the flax seed. Definitely plan on making again.

These are wonderful! To make them healthier I substituted 1 whole banana for the butter and applesauce for the egg. I also used whole wheat flour instead of white! Made them very moist.
