Comments on this Recipe

These cookies are easy, fast, and quite tasty. I don't like raisins, so I used chocolate chips instead, the cookies were gone in about two minutes. These are great if you're craving something fast and scrumptious that's also healthy.

Please include nutrition information in the printable copy.

Made as directed. Yummy! The cookies will be appearing at a bake sale soon. :) Thanks for the recipe!
