Tammy's Review: 

These cookies are soft, almost cake-y, and very tasty! I like mine with chocolate chips. ;) They're good without any of the optional ingredients, also. This is a great, easy healthy cookie recipe! These don't last long at our house. :D My rating: 10/10


These were yummy! I made a batch to send to my beau in Virginia, and they arrived yesterday, and he enjoys them. They're healthy, so he (of course) prefers the Homestyle chocolate chip cookies (I sent a batch of those as well), but he still really likes these...and I do too. It's nice to eat a chocolate chip cookie and not feel completely guilty ;)


These are my favorite healthy cookie. I think they are addictive. I love the cake-y texture and the flavor of the molasses in them. I always use all whole wheat flour instead of the rice flour. I usually add pecans and golden raisins for the 'extra' ingredients.

I have a junk food lovin' friend who begs me to bring these when I come to visit. Her whole family loves them and they fight over them when I bring them. Last time she told me that I needed to make TWO batches the next time I visit. I just made some today to send for her birthday. I added sunflower seeds along with the pecans and golden raisins. I doubled the recipe, but saved some out for hubby and me. :)

These are awesome cookies!


These looks so yummy!!
I would like to check, is it possible for me not to use molasses?
