Too dry

Very crumbly cookies. I'm an avid baker and wanted to try a healthier cookie recipe. From the start I could tell the ratio of wet to dry ingredients was off. I followed the recipe, but I added a few additional tablespoons of canola oil to combat the dry texture. Despite the addition of extra canola oil, the cookies ended up baking into a crumbly mess.


O My G. We came up with so many flavors... Orange juice and orange zest. Applesauce instead of oil. Dried Lavender Flowers. (my personal fav.) Lemon, we added chopped up cranraisins to a batch. The possibilities are endless really. Thanks for the Terrific Recipe.

Perhaps I did something wrong?

I may very well have done something wrong after reading other folks reviews. Mine were horrible. They were crumbly before going in the freezer and weren't forgiving after coming out of the freezer. I still baked them. They were clearly wrong in texture, and the flavor was just bland. btw, I made no substitutions.

Lemon and other flavors

My son wanted lemon cookies so we added the zest of one organic lemon to the dough. Success! Any other flavor ideas? Please share!

I wasn't sure I would like them, but I LOVE them!

I made the almond and coconut & the chocolate chip ones. The kids and my husband LOVED them. I feel good about making these for my family and not worrying about harmful ingredients, preservatives, and sugar filled cookies. These are great! They are sweet, but not too sweet. Give these a chance you will NOT regret it!!!! They are also very easy to put together.

Very healthy for cookies, can be frozen, and sliced and baked quickly.
