These are awesome! We eat mostly whole foods and I try not to eat any processed or cane suger. I only used about 1/4 raw suger in these plus some molasses to make up for the 'brown' surger part.I added just a bit more wheat flour and used olive oil. I can't stop eating them! I didn't put any fruit, nuts or chocolate in them since I didn't have any and to make them healthier. YUM YUM!!! The second time I added a bit more honey and cut the suger. Some flax seeds and dandy blend for extra nutrients. I was going to add some pumpkin seeds and cranberries but I was out. I think some pumpkin spice would be great, or just pumpkin!
