  1. I'm wondering if I could make these using the pulp from my carrot/apple juice in place of the carrots and apple sauce. It has ginger in it too usually, but I don't think that would be a bad thing in this case. I'll give it a try.
    1. I am going to say steel but oats may work in these as well. Please report the results so I can tell others in the future. :)
  2. I know that bananas are one of main ingredients ---but sometime bananas really bother my stomach. Any substitutes that I can use. Thank You
  3. These look great except I cannot tolerate bananas. Nope. Never. Do you think maybe I could use pureed white beans with a little vanilla nondairy milk and watch to see if baking time needs adjustment? Opinion? If I try It, I'll report back. Thank you.
  4. I made them without the pineapple and with coconut and they turned out wonderfully! I also skipped some of the spices and the raisins. I found cooking them a little longer worked a little better as well.
