These are very tasty. I served them at a buffet dinner party along with other healthy and not healthy desserts. I got very good comments on them. And I liked them a lot too. And I definitely ate too many!

These are ok, a little bland. They taste like the other banana oat cookies, but with the pumpkin flavor instead. I guess I was expecting too much with the high ratings.

I thought these were delicious. They taste more like muffins than cookies.

I did not like these too much. They turned out a bit rubbery. I much prefer the bannana oat cookies to these.

I made these yesterday. Everyone agrees that they taste even better today than they did yesterday. I made smaller cookies (yielded 35 instead of 16 as the recipe suggests), and baked them for longer than the recommended time (15 minutes instead of only 10). They are still very chewy, and only slightly crispy at some of the edges. I used oat flour instead of whole wheat flour, because that's all I had on hand. And I used chopped dates and a drizzle of maple syrup instead of the date sugar. I really like that they're not super sweet. Yum!

I just made a batch and they are really good. They will be perfect with a cup of tea in the afternoon. Mildly sweet and the tastes of the ingredients really come through (nutmeg, pineapple, raisins). I substituted chopped dates and a drizzle of Agave Nectar for the date sugar and I made 42 smaller cookies. I'll definitely make these again.

I just made this. The batter is very good! In mine, I left out the oats, and instead put in millet flour. I also added in chia seeds, xantham gum, and arrowroot powder to help make everything stick together with no eggs being used.

I am cooking mine in a silicone bunt cake pan, and in a silicone muffin pan. We will have a beautiful cake, and muffins from this.

This will make a beautiful presentation!!!

I am doing test-runs on recipies for Thanksgiving.

Thank you Dr. Fuhrman and staff!!! Happy Thanksgiving Dr. Fuhrman, staff, and everyone on Dr. Fuhrman's website!!!! Blessings to you all!

I really enjoy the flavor of these cookies. They are high in carbs, so only have 1 at a time. Keep in fridge or freeze.
