These were just alright. My wife suggested chocolate chips. They did need to be sweeter. I didnt make the syrup part of the recipe, maybe that would have made the difference.

Odd side note: our dogs wouldn't stay out of the kitchen while I was cooking these, even when I put some I had frozen in the toaster the next morning.

I looked up if the dogs could eat all of the spices and found out that Nutmeg can cause seizures and kill a dog. But pumpkin is fine and is used in high end dog foods. So they must have been going crazy for the pumpkin smell.
