    If I could give this zero stars I would. Sorry but even though I baked it for quite some time it might as well been soggy oatmeal on the inside of the cookie. My husband agreed.
    Love these, easy to make and so good

    I'm not the biggest fan of eating oatmeal, so this was a great way for me to get it into my diet. The consistency is definitely mushier than traditional cookies, but i still enjoyed them. My 8 year old daughter (picky eater) did, too.

    Not at all good. Didn't bake well and don't taste at all good.

    They were really good. I added some ground flaxseed to firm them up a little and I definitely baked them for at least 30 minutes. I loved how easy they were to grab anytime and how guilt free they are! I’m going to make a big batch and freeze them.

    I loved it! I substitute the applesauce for Greek Yogurt and the nuts for sliced almonds. Just because that’s what I had! 😆 They turned out good!

    These breakfast cookies came out delicious! I’ve read the reviews noting the cookies are a tad too moist when fully cooked. So, I baked them for 25 minutes as instructed, flipped the cookies, and baked them in the oven for 6-8 more minutes. The additional bake time helped the outside of the cookie but not so much the inside. I would make this again.

    The flavor is ok but it wasn’t a favorite. It’s a bit rubbery feeling.

    They taste good and recipe actually made 24 cookies! They don’t get quite as solid as I picture cookies, but they stay in one piece when picked up!
    Very yummy. Didn’t put raisins only cranberries and pecans.

    they probably work with oatmeal, but the consistency with old fashioned oats is just strange and I had to bake it for about 45 mins to get them to be a bit solid

    I Didn't have all ingredients so I substituted part of the oats with almond meal and the applesauce with my daughters smoothie. It turned out really good!

    I had to change this recipe up a lot due to not having everything I need it on hand. I didn't like the consistency of the cookies before putting them in the oven so I actually ended up adding flour and baking powder overall they turned out good and healthy though.

    It was really easy to make, but I wasn't a huge fan of them. My toddler wouldnt eat them either. I might try making with peanut butter one more time to see if it is better.

    I substitute peanut butter for applesauce and it works like magic! Also, I add nuts, cranberries, whatever I want to it

    Very delicious! It was very easy to make and the flavors were wonderful. You could really feel the apple sauce, raisins and all other yumminess. Definitely will make this again!

    Very good! Easy and ready in no time. Used almonds instead of walnuts and sultanas (golden raisins). Smells great when baking.

    This recipe was healthy and good. I used whole oats and followed it, but baked it a little longer to get it a little crisper. I would not call it a cookie because it seemed more like a granola wafer. "Cookie" says sweet to me.

    Turned out amazing. I added a bit more banana and oatmeal since I might have overdone it with cinnamon but still came out perfect.
