These just turn out for me. My dough was too runny and so it made very flat cookies that wouldn't come off the cookie sheet. Flavor was good though.

I got this recipe from somewhere else (I think it's from Tightwad Gazzette) and used freshly ground w.w. pastry flour, w.w. homemade bread crumbs, Sucanat and coconut oil. They don't spread at all, but they are very good - like a previous reviewer said, chewy brownie like texture. I will try adding choc. chips next. It took 15-17 minutes to bake. The family liked them. Thanks for posting!

I have made a recipe very similar to this for years and we love it. For variety I started using pretzel crumbs as the crumbs and we love the salty/chocolatey combo. I have also used crused cereal with success. I used melted shortening but will move to oil the next time I make these. A wonderful use of leftovers!
