I loved this recipe once I tweaked to suit me. I made two batches: one as written and one in which I substituted 1/3 St. Joseph's Maltitol Sweetner and reduced the water to about a Tablespoon or two. In comparing the two the one with the St. Joseph's was sweeter and I thought a better tasting cookie. The original recipie produced a cookie that was more bitter in taste. Read More

I don't like very sweet cookies so I gave these a try. Unfortunately they were very heavy unflavorful and even my diabetic mother wouldn't eat them! Read More

This cookie is tasty I might try it with unsweetened chocolate instead of cocoa next time to see if there is a difference. Also should add sweetners with dry ingredients not with eggs like regular sugar. Read More

This is an excellent recipe- very versatile. I have many food allergies so I used amaranth flour flax (instead of an egg) potato milk and honey (instead of granular sweetener). They still turned out wonderful. Also if you bake them for less time they stay chewy in the middle and taste like brownies! Read More

I used honey instead of artificial sweetener and about half the amount of water called for. They turned out great very cakey and spongy. These would make great whoopie pies! Read More
