Unfortunately, I had to put these in the compost. I wondered about the 2 Tbsp. of baking soda, but put it in anyway. Maybe it was supposed to be 2 tsp. I really think that with less baking soda, this recipe would be excellent, worthy of 5 stars. In fact, the spice combination was so good, that I'll give it another try soon with less soda. I used whole wheat flour. Used cocoa, as i had no carob powder. Also, I had no cardamom, so I just skipped it. And, last I only used 1/2 tsp. of salt.
