These cookies are fantastic just as written but it also is a fabulous base recipe that you can easily modify for variety. I have cut sugar even lower by using Splenda Brown Sugar Blend and Truvia Baking Blend - just remember to use HALF the amount of these substitutes otherwise it is too sweet. I also make a double batch of the cookie dough and freeze it in individual cookie portions. That way when hubby or I want cookies, we can bake just 6 or so and not have extras sitting around - excellent way to portion control sweets.

I made this cookie recipe earlier this evening, and I thought it was excellent! I'm trying to get my family to eat more whole grain foods.
These are even better then the regular home-made ones! After you have these you will never EVER like regular ones with loads of butter again. I substituted plain non-fat yogurt for the butter, cut the salt in half, and added a little more vanilla. They were amazing, I've made them dozens of times, and everyone loves them.
Suprisingly yummy. I am chocolate cookie snob and will make this as an alternative to packaged cookies for my children's lunches
This is a great recipe by itself, but I even made a few of my own modifications to make these cookies even healthier. 1. I replaced half of the butter with Vanilla Low-Fat Natural Yogurt 2. I replaced half of the granulated sugar with natural honey (you could probably even substitute all of it, maybe the same for the butter/yogurt) 3. I used dark chocolate chips instead of milk chocolate 4. I added in a cup of slivered almonds for some extra protein and flavor
Great recipe which was very fun to alter and experiment with! VERY tasty cookies!
