These were good, but I changed the ingredients to make them a little less rich, as I wanted to give them to my kids. I cut the butter in half and replaced the butter I cut with applesauce. This added a ton of moisture, and cut the fat big time! I also used 1\2 whole wheat flour, and substitued nutmeg for the cloves, and added 1\2 dark chocolate chips and half milk chocolate chips. I also used quick oats in place of rolled, because that's what I had on hand. All in all, basic substitutions. I agree that these came out very cakelike- almost like little mini banana breads. I know that some of that had to do with the whole wheat flour, but knowing what I know about baking, these would have been very cakelike anyway. However, they are delicious, and my 2 year old devoured them!
