  • “These are good,not so sweet.I replaced the sugar substitute with 1 tsp. stevia.I only had 1 T. cocoa,and didn’t miss it.I used 1 cup whole wheat flour,and 1 cup barely flour.Good enough my 2 year old is on his second.”

  • “Don’t know why nobody has picked up on this recipe before now, as I find these healthy little gems to be GREAT TASTING COOKIES, but then, I’m a chocoholic of the best kind! I actually made these for myself, but then gave most of them away (along with the recipe), dividing them between two of my diabetic friends! Thanks for a very nice keeper!
