I have made this recipe. and they are very easy..the dough is a little bland in tase..I would add a tsp of cinnamon..made about 48 cookies...added just a bit of walnuts, and more chipits.. But as far as rating the initial recipe, its not too bad, so I will give it a five star, becasue of the protien and nutrients..easiness, and no trouble with baking size and texture is all fine.

delicious! I also substituted in some brown flour and used 3/4 cup lightly packed brown sugar. I also substituted half the chocolate chips for chopped pecans. They turned out nice and springy. You'd never guess there's beans in them! Baked at 175C for 14 minutes.

These cookies are great on so many levels! I used 1 cup all-purpose flour, 3/4 whole wheat, and added about 1/4 tsp cinnamon based on andypandy's suggestion. Hubby and niece love these!

I love sending these to school with my niece, I know how important protein and healthy foods are for learning!
