these are delicious! i had some issues making them as we used freshly ground spelt and didn't remove the bran. after a couple mins in the oven they looked like soup so we scraped it back into the bowl and added a cup of whole wheat. the result was chocolate chips melted into the batter and an extra cup of bran and they were amazing. we also used butter instead of margarine. we will be making these again!
Whoa this recipe is great! I also did the 1/2 Brummel & Brown yogurt spread + 1/2 applesauce and they turned out very well. And, I tossed in some hand crushed walnuts (I'm too lazy to chop up the halves!). I'm waiting for my second pan to bake as I type this... we may be having these cookies for dinner. Thanks for the recipe and the tips!!
These were very chocolaty and moist. I love that they taste great and are very healthy!! I used 1/2 c. applesauce and 1/2 c. olive oil instead of the butter to make them even healthier!! I am always on the look out for healthy sweets...I am an addict. Thanks for the great recipe. And thanks Gruenes for the suggestion to use applesauce.
