Excellent and healthy-got 2 requests for the recipe

Great tasting, although we did do a few modifications. I used a nice organic stone ground whole wheat pastry flour, and replaced 1/4 cup with almond flour and 1/4 cup coconut flour (I added an extra egg and T applesauce to the wet ingredients-coconut flour is very absorbent). Also, my husband threw out our zested lemon when he was cleaning the kitchen, so I used the zest of 1/2 small lime, 1/2 an orange and lemon juice that I reduced to 1/2 teaspoon. We cheated and used commercial cookie icing, mostly white. If you dilute it with water it makes a nice glaze!

Healthy. We used NO white flour.
