    Thanks so much for posting this! These are yummy AND effective :). I tweaked the recipe a bit to suit my own tastes: I used Smart Balance and a mashed banana for the butter, reduced the sugar and chocolate chips a bit, and added some unsweetened coconut instead of dried cranberries (I was out). They are flavorful enough to mask the strong flavor of the yeast, which allows you to enjoy a treat AND to a good thing for baby. Thanks for posting!
