Love this recipe! I did change it up a little bit: I didn't use soy flour, but simply used half whole wheat and half all-purpose flour, increasing the amounts of each. I also added 1 tsp of cinnamon and used 3/4 cup of raisins instead of chocolate chips. Quite delicious! Thanks for sharing!
Amazing cookies! These got eaten up in no time, they were much loved. I made as written and used an organic olive oil, organic cane sugar and turbinado sugar. They weren't quite done at 12 minutes so I had to turn down the oven to about 335F-340F and leave them in for about another 5-7 minutes... not sure what happened there. Anyhow, they were still wonderful! Thanks for posting.
These were very good. I did make a few changes. Like the other reviewer, I was afraid of the taste of olive oil so I used canola. I used 1 whole egg and 2 egg yokes, added about 3/4 cups choc chips, and used walnuts. I used HALF the sugar, and they still came out great! I love all the healthy grains.
