"These taste more like a "bar" to me than a cookie, but I still thought they were good. They are something I can snack on without feeling to bad, since they are pretty healthy compared to most cookies. They also taste like they might be good with some chocolate chips or dried cranberry in them!"

"Very flat and bland. Not sweet like a cookie at all, more like a flavorless cracker."
