"There's not nutmeg in this recipe so I'm not sure what the previous reviewer meant. Anyway, for being healthy, these are pretty good! I used pecans instead of walnuts, whole wheat flour, and 2 eggs because I had no egg substitute on hand.

"Not a lot of flavor and there was too much nutmeg. I would add more sugar and cinnamon to the mix."
