I'm really enjoying these cookies! I'm trying hard to improve my diet, but need a sweet snack sometimes. I replaced the brown sugar with 3/4 cups turbinado sugar and 3/4 cup natural applesauce. I also replaced the unbleached flour with whole white wheat flour and the chocolate chips with carob chips. I probably will leave out the cranberries next time. Thanks for a healthy sweet treat!
