Just made these tonight. I substituted 1 cup of white whole wheat flour. They have a nice flavor - not very sweet, but hearty and healthy tasting. I wish mine had turned out a bit crisper...they just wouldn't do it! They're definitely firm, just not totally dry like I like. Oh well, I'll keep trying. Nice recipe - thank you!
The cookies were crumbly when I was slicing them.I also reduced the cinnaon by 2 teaspoons, and I had only half a cup of honey,so I added a little sugar to make up for the sweetness.I am thinking maybe that is why the cookies were a little crumbly.My two year old just nibbled away at them though.That says a lot-the recipe is very good.
I wasn't a big fan of these, but when I gave them away, everyone else loved them. Mine turned out a bit too crumbly--I am not sure why...
