Awesome Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting
I hope seekers read more member reviews and don't just stop at the 3 currently on the recipe page. I've made this recipe twice. The first time I definitely was a new cook and would've complained that this was too oily. But just making it again today and having huge success, I wonder if the critics are combining ingredients in order directed and mixing thoroughly? I combined whole wheat and white flours, used 3/4cup turbinado sugar, and added 1/2c raisins. I used a different cream cheese frosting, also on this site, but also reduced the sugar by half and it is all absolutely wonderful. This is absolutely a 5 star cake!

Molasses Carob Chip Cookies
I've made this a couple of times and also tried using all honey, 3 packets of stevia, and walnuts instead of almonds. Prefer 1-1/2 cups of carob chips. This is a great cookie!

Playgroup Granola Bars
I have tried multiple granola bar recipes and this is the one I like best. This is the second time I've made these- they're wonderful with the raisins, but overall way too sweet. This time, because of what we had on hand, I didn't use the wheat germ, but 2 TB flax seeds instead, and only 1/2c wheat flour. In an effort to balance the amount of dry ingredients, I used 2/3c dessecated coconut and 1/3c ground almonds. Concerning oil or applesauce, I prefer oil (it's worth it to try both- personal choice), and I always add 1/2c carob chips. Just the right texture. For those vegans, substitute 2 Tb ground flaxseed soaked in 1 Tb water for the egg. I don't know if it's wiser to decrease the sugar or honey to cut down on the sweetness, but I will try 1/4 to 1/3c sugar next time and 1/3c honey. Thank you so much- I finally found THE chewy granola bar recipe for my family. :)
