ADD SUGARFREE VANILLA PUDDING (100 calories) & these low calorie treats are delish!! Mine weren't pancakey at all. They actually were like little mountains that didn't spread. I made some tweaks: Sm. pack Sugarfree Vanilla Pudding (1 oz) 3/4 C whole wheat flour 1/2 C choc chips (more than enough) 1 whole egg 10 min bake time Enjoy! Read More

Interesting cookie...the texture is kind of like a pancake but the flavor is good. It did satisy my chocolate craving (I doubled the chocolate chips so that probably helped!). I would make these again but nothing like the real thing. Read More

this recipe is amazing for someone who is looking for low calorie sweet snacks! Yes they have a soft fluffy consistancy.......but they taste great and wow........I added 1/3 cup of oats... 68 calories in 1 cookie you cant get any better than that! And hey look like real cookies. I also made my own apple sauce using 2 apples which cooked while I was putting the rest of the ingredients togther. Thanks for this recipe. Read More

Okay so yes they taste a little pancake-y. But come on they are 63 calories! And who doesn't love pancakes? If someone told me they were only that many calories I wouldn't believe them! I added more chocolate chips about a 1/4 cup more flour and a tablespoon of butter the batter seemed like it was missing something they may have gone over 63 calories but they are still a lot lighter than the 500 calorie ones on this site and taste origional and amazing! Make this recipe with these alterations and you won't be dissappointed! Read More

I really enjoyed these cookies! They were very good considering how healthy they are. I usually add a little cinnamon and substitute whole wheat flour. You can also add 1 cup of dry oatmeal for a hearty chewy cookie. Just eyeball the dough as you add the oats so it doesn't get too dry but if it does just add a little more applesauce. Read More

Maybe these cookies have a different texture but they are still very good. I'm not a big fan of chocolate so I didn't put any in the cookies but I did add cinnamon which made them even better. I also used splenda instead of real sugar. Read More

Very easy to make. This has become favorite for my family. I do tend to add items like oatmeal honey nut cerel slivered almonds. makes batter thicker and does increase baking time but well worth the time. Read More
