I modified this recipe A LOT, but the modified version turned out great, so I'm sure the original would, too. Here are the changes that I made:
- Substituted 1C peanut butter for the butter (yummm)
- Substituted 1/2C honey for the white sugar
- Used 2 1/2C whole wheat pastry flour instead of the all-purpose
- Subbed 1/2C dark chocolate chips for the pecans
Because of all of these changes, I had to end up making a pan full of cookie bars instead of individual round cookies. I baked them for about 15 minutes in a 9x13" metal pan. They are DELICIOUS, although a tad on the crumbly side, and I suppose a tiny bit healthier than the original recipe. Definitely calorie dense! One thing that I won't do again is use both cinnamon and chocolate chips. I regretted doing so the minute I realized it. Cinnamon and chocolate are kind of icky together, so if you're going to use chocolate instead of nuts, omit the cinnamon. :)
