    While these may be good, they are definitely not low carb! 3 3/4cups of flour and 1/2 cup of molasses are pure white flour/sugar carbs... the rating is for the claim, not for the taste.

    these should be re-named low sugar cookies, definitely NOT a low carb cookie, sorry.

    With all due respect, of course they don't taste like low carb...they aren't. We low carbers do not use molasses, it is a sugar and we don't use white flour. I am sure this is a great tasting recipe, but it is a reduced sugar recipe, not low carb.

    Great diabetic cookies! I made these a little lower carb by using 3/4 cup soy flour and 1/4 cup flaxseed meal and 1 cup whole wheat flour in place of that amount of the white flour. That took them to 7 grams carbs each and .5 gram dietary fiber. Thanks, we'll definitely make these again. And to the low carb naysayers, how many cookies do you know of with this few carbs in them?!

    Made this for Valentine's, with and without the icing. You can smell the cloves with a hint of cinnamon in it and it's soft and chewy. Good to have with milk. Thanks for this diabetic-friendly recipe!


I've waited to fill out my about me page because I wanted to get a "feel" for the people here and how they affect my life. I would like to say it was been wonderful. I have made many friends here and the support and comfort conveyed when needed has been incredible! I own my own daycare and am buying the house I grew up in! I will be branching out to a daycare center in the next five years so hopefully then I'll be able to do the house renovations I would like to do. I am addicted to this site and am here daily. UC86 is a personal friend of mine who I met when pregnant and was looking for a labor coach. She held my youngest before I did! I look forward to making many friends here on Zaar and hope to be a friend to many along the way!
