Chewy Crispy Coconut Cookies
Okay, I made this the first time with revisions. I did give it 5 stars due to the fact that my healthy version tasted so good that the original must, also. My changes: whole wheat flour for all purpose, Nature's Path Smart Bran cereal for the cornflakes, 1/4 cup Brummell and Brown Yogurt spread and 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce for the butter, 1/2 cup Splenda and 1/4 cup Splenda Brown Sugar Blend, 1 cup unsweetened coconut flakes, and added 1/3 cup dark chocolate chips. I baked for the recommended cooking time and they were perfect. My husband usually hates "healthified" versions of treats, but really likes these. I haven't told him they contain a high fiber cereal...

Whole Wheat Muffins
Great base recipe. When I made as originally directed, I found it a little bland. But, after the following additions/changes, they are a hit with the family: added 1 small can of pineapple chunks with juice, 2 very ripe bananas-smashed, 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract and 1/2cup of shredded coconut. I omitted the oil, cut back a bit on the sugar and added a splash of milk after mixing everything just to get the right consistency. This made 12 perfectly portioned muffins and they came out moist and flavorful. I try to replace oil and butter with fruit when I can.

Cranberry Nut Bread II
I only made a few adjustments (I always try to make a bit healthier): whole wheat flour, 3/4 cup of dk brown sugar (I just prefer the taste), about 2 tablespoons of Smart Balance spread for the butter, halved the cranberries, added 1/2 tspn each of vanilla extract, cinnamon and nutmeg and skipped the icing. I cooked it at 350 for 50 mins and it turned out pretty tasty. I did find it a little dry and I will try adding a small amount of nonfat yogurt to the batter next time in place of the butter. I'm going to make mini loaves for the kids to give their teachers for Christmas this year. 1 loaf should translate to 4 mini loaves.
