    These cookies turned out healthier tasting than I imagined even though I added chocolate chips. Eating my fifth one, so I guess that speaks to itself!

    These are awesome! Nice soft cookie and not an overpowering nutmeg taste. I used two egg whites instead of one egg and also left out the pecans, the egg white change didn't seem to make a problem at all. I Just ate two with my morning coffee, and thinking about another... thanks for posting! yummy!
