"I'm really glad I read the comments before popping these in the oven! The dough seemed very dry so I added 1/2 cup of butter and 2 tsp. vanilla. The cookies were still very crumbly, though the flavor is good. Is this recipe missing a couple wet ingredients? Also, the yield was only 14 small cookies, as they didn't expand at all."
"this is a really a terrible recipe. I knew by the batter that they would be a crumbly mess but hoped that they would transform into something better in the oven. It didn't happen. I should have baked it like granola because that it what it turned into, a big pile of OK tasting crumbs."
"Came back here online again, after trying this great quick and easy recipe. A real treat for my dear friend whom has to regulate her diet intake.. Nothing fancy, Love this, Thanks!!"
"Hard to provide the accurate stars for this recipe since I changed it up a bit. I used creamy pb rather than crunchy, and 1/4 cup of natural unsweetened applesauce instead of the egg. I also substituted old fashioned oats for quick cooking. And I added a tsp of cinnamon and a 1/2 tsp of vanilla extract. I had to bake them for at least 13 min and probably could have baked them a little longer. But they taste chewy and delicious, and they have no eggs, soooo it can't hurt to eat them a little raw :) I would make these again for people who do not like raisins or chocolate, and just want a simple cookie."
"Wish I could give less than one star. This recipe is horrible! The cookies are dry and small and the recipe yield is inaccurate."
