"A recipe I tiddled and tweaked to come up with. It has a distinct taste of honey, and the spices are allowed to shine through. Sometimes, I add some cocoa powder for that subtle taste.
Hope you like this, its one of the first recipes I managed to really tweak up nicely." — blankpage

unsweetened cocoa powder
1 1/2 tablespoons
1 1/2 teaspoons
I followed the recipe exact, only using dried cranberries instead of raisins and I omitted the cocoa powder. I don't keep parchment paper on hand, I just sprayed my pan with a little non-stick cooking spray. Before pressing them into a baking pan, I did coat my hands with non-stick cooking spray just to make it a little easier. The baking time was spot on for me. These turned out exactly as I hoped they would. I did not try them myself but the kids thought they were "yummy".
I used only whole wheat flour, and changed the applesauce to pumpkin puree. Wonderful taste!
Followed the recipe exactly without using the cocoa. I found them to be outstanding in flavor however rubbery in texture. I would rate them a 3 1/2 if I could.
