  1. Yum!! I’m definitely going to have to take these with me to work while I’m standing at a hostess stand trying to look pretty (but I’m actually in pain from my heels). LOL thanks for sharing Jessica! <3

  2. Beyond excited to see that these are VEGAN! Looking forward to making these in the near future- they look absolutley delicious. I hope you had a wonderful Easter weekend!

  3. I know everyone loves chocolate chip but I’m all about oatmeal raisin cookie dough and a healthy way to eat it for breakfast… sounds like breakfast heaven to me 🙂

  4. Thank you for sharing,they look delicious and easy to make. I am wondering if you have tried it with  a banana instead of the applesauce since I always have those more available than opening a new jar of applesauce. I think I will try both ways and hope to let you know. Thanks again for the share

  5. YUM, I definitely have to try this out!

  6. I’ve been looking for a great snack like this to take to work and these seem to fit the bill almost exactly!
    I do have a couple questions about possible ingredient substitution. I am not vegan or vegetarian so I do not have some of these ingredients on hand on a regular basis. I was wondering if it would work to use regular milk instead of the almond milk and peanut butter instead of almond butter…
    Thanks!
