SO HOW'D IT GO?

These are fabulous! I left out the nuts, and used whole wheat flour. My family loved them and so did my Yoga Teacher's class! They are CRAZY :D good! Thanks for sharing!

I omitted the raisins & chopped up some pecans & these are very tasty but the texture to me is more like a muffin, so next time I'm going to put the batter in muffin tins & see how they turn out.

I just made these for a vegan potluck and I have to say, they are DELICIOUS!!!  My whole apartment smells wonderful, =)  I also omitted the nuts and the raisins.  I love the cakey texture of these cookies!

Hehe I haven't made this recipe, I just found it but I had to comment because I possibly wouldn't have noticed it had it not said "photo by Kiri".  I thought "What?!  I didn't make these...".  Being from England I don't know any other Kiris so I wanted to comment.  Having now said all this, from the picture (and recipe) these cookies look DELICIOUS and I will be making these as soon as possible!

Wow.... suprisingly good!  I was out of brown sugar so I used normal.  I also halved the recipe.  I used only 1/3 of a cup of oil and used coconut oil.  I didn't have any nuts, but I will DEFINITELY use them next time, needs a little something.  I used way more spices than asked for and it turned out great.

i omitted the raisins and only added half a cup of nuts (i used pecans) and these are very good. puffy, cakey cookies that taste excellent. this recipe sure makes a lot, so i brought some home to the omni family who devoured them. this recipe is a keeper

these are pretty good! not too sweet and they are definitely cakey.  they are super easy to make, and a nice change from the ordinary.

hi kiri, i recognised the tiki!  I'm also from New Zealand.  So nice to hear of somebody using real pumpkin!  Our New Zealand cooking habits are so different from the US.  I don't think we use so much processed food, or maybe I am just judging everything by my own eating habits, who knows?  Anyway, it's the first time I've seen anything remotely New Zealand-ish on this site and so I wanted to comment.

Cheers!

This recipe is yummy! I don't think we have canned pumpkin in New Zealand (I've never seen it anyway!) so I just used boiled, mashed pumpkin and also skipped the nuts and raisins etc. I also used only half the oil and a mix of white and wholeheat flour. Despite all this mucking around they still came up great! :)
