    Simple. Tasty. I added peanut butter. Next time (and there will be a next time), I’m going to try adding dates.

    Blah is a good word for these. They don't have a good consistency to them and the taste was very bland; I don't eat salts or sugars so that's saying a lot. I mashed the bananas by hand and ended up having to use a lot more than the recipe called for of the oats because all it made was a watery mess. The next time I made them I used flavored Quaker oats (cinnamon apple and bananas and cream) and STILL had to use more oats than the recipe said but they tasted a lot better and my kids actually ate those ones (though they still didn't like them). I would say these are good for if you're running late and need a nutritious quick breakfast on the go, these would come in handy.

    Pretty blah. I guess our house just isn’t used to sugar-free gluten-free balls of stuff. Probably should stick with less healthy recipes with my guys.

    My mom is hard to please and she likes them. Very good.

    Really easy to make and good flavor, but a bit “wet”. Will try a little more oatmeal next time.

    These cookies are my kind of snack: more-ish, chewy, healthy, and delicious. I added 10 pitted dates (chopped) for each cup of oats. I'll soon be trying some variations, like cinnamon, vanilla extract, pecan nut, or peanuts.

    Really good and healthy for a to-go snack! I added blueberries... interesting but still really good. My favorite is peanut butter or cinnamon

    Kinda bland. I did it with blueberries. I'll see if my 1 yr old daughter likes it. If she does than it's a win.

    Perfect!! I really Love is easy to eat healthy with Yummly ❣️❣️ it became easy to plan my meals every day
    I just added nutmeg, honey, vanilla extract and cinnamon and it taste amazing. Satisfed my cookie craving. I also added sunflower seed butter instead of peanut butter because thats what I had. I would use peanut butter or use unsweeten applesauce

    I am obsessed with these cookies. They are healthy, satisfying and delicious. And extremely easy to make.

    Very easy, but only one out of two kids liked them, even though I added chocolate chips. Will be good to keep on file when need to use up some banana.

    I started out with the basic recipe, plus the walnuts as described. I was quite pleased! Quick and painless and lots of room for variation.
