"I think the oven temp is too high. The outside of mine burnt after only having them in for the minimum of 18 minutes. And the flavor was just "eh", nothing special or anything."

"I love this recipe. The kids don't even realize it's healthy! I cut back on the chips and make mini muffins. Sometimes I am bummed that I don't have all the ingredients for these on hand though (usually it's the applesauce). A definite keeper!"
