    It's nice to have a treat that is actually nutritious. Add 1/4 cup ground flax seed for even more nutrition.  -  18 Nov 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    i has a bit hesitant with this recipe after reading some of the reviews, but these turned out awesome! they tasted great, without being full of sugar. i had no trouble with the cookies not sticking together like others had. everything worked out perfectly. some of the few changes i made -- i doubled the peanut butter, doubled the banana, used bran muffin mix instead of actual oat bran(thats all the store had) and used fresh wild cranberries(next time i think i'll add a bit more then 1/2 cup) but like i said AWESOME!!  -  20 Oct 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    For such healthy version of cookies the taste is not bad at all. I followed the recipe exactly, but ended up with dough, not batter-like mixture. SO I had to shape the cookies with my hands. Anyhow, they taste a bit dry, but delicious, and my 6year old eats them (I omitted cranberries). Next time I will add flour spoon by spoon to avoid the dryness.  -  13 May 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
