I made some changes to make the recipe healthier, but they turned out great! My kids (age 11 down to 18 months) LOVED them. I doubled the recipe. I subbed applesauce as another reviewer suggested (1 cup for the 1 cup of butter I would have needed). I subbed 1 cup prarie gold flour (a whole wheat), 1 cup whole wheat, 1/2 cup flaxseed, and 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour- and I measured scant knowing it would be a bit dry with these changes. I decreased the sugar to 3/4 cup aproximately (yep didn't go anywhere near 2 cups for doubling) but I also added a bit of molasses (that I didn't measure LOL)- probably 1/4 cup or maybe 1/2. I subbed yogurt for the milk. I did 1 Tablespoon cinnamon, omitted the salt entirely, added about 1 tsp of ginger, about 1/2 tsp allspice. Doubled the coconut (but measured scant). baking soda and baking powder were doubled as were the eggs. I just mixed it all together since I didn't have butter to cream with sugar.
