They are in the oven right now , 4 more min and they are ready, I'm trusting you on this one...


These turned out really good, thank you! I'm a really lazy cook - I just throw everything in and mix it together at the same time. They still turned out great. I also used white chocolate chips and threw in some dried cranberries. nom

I replaced the oil for applesauce and used whole wheat flour. I'm a nanny for two doctors and they loved that I made their children health-conscience cookies that the girls absolutely LOVED!! My picky husband loved it as well, thank you so much with sharing this incredible recipe!!


These cookies are DELISH!!!!


These were my first attempt at cookies, ever, and they turned out fantastic which speaks volumes for the recipe. They don't look anything like the picture, retaining the less than uniform shape they had going into the oven, but they taste SO GOOD.

I substituted no sugar added applesauce for the oil, changed the additions to 2/3 bittersweet chips and 2/3 walnuts, and made smaller cookies (i got 40, and that's after several 'taste tests' of the dough). I wish I'd gotten a finer ground flour, pastry perhaps... but they are a perfect 75 calorie (by my recipe and tracker) sweet tooth satisfier and I will be making them again. Soon, because they're going very quickly.
