"I was determined to make a tasty, guilt-free cookie and I am very pleased with how these turned out. They're not very sweet but have a subtle flavor of applesauce and cinnamon mixed in with chocolate chips, nuts, and dried cranberries."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

Awesome healthy cookies! These are definitely a perfect base for an "everything" cookie. These are the changes I made - partly out of necessity and partly because I am health-conscious! - I used unsweetened applesauce - Heaping 1/2 cup brown sugar only (omitted white). - 1 whole egg and 1/2 of a banana mashed - handful of sesame seeds - 1/4 cup walnuts and 1/4 sunflower seeds - 1/2 cup white and milk chocolate chips (no craisins or raisins on hand). - whole wheat flour Because I improvised a bit, I ended up having an overly sticky dough at the end so added an extra 1/4 cup of flour. I made the cookies quite large (1 1/2 dozen) and so baked them for 10 minutes. Perfect! The result is a very yummy and pretty healthy cookie - one I don't feel bad about allowing my two year old to have. Next time, I may cut the brown sugar back again to just 1/2 cup... and keep the rest of my changes :)
Tastes OK. Has a strange texture.
Oh my! These were delicious! I made a few alterations, however. I didn't have applesauce in the house, so I used 1/2 cup of vanilla yogurt. This seemed to work great. I also used a 1/2 cup of splenda in place of the sugar and only 1/3 cup of chocolate chips. I'm not a fan of nuts in my cookies, so I left them out. The description of the cookie said they weren't very sweet, but I thought they were PLENTY sweet. I will definitely be making these again! It's an awesome alternative when you're craving something sweet!
these cookies are soooo wonderful!! i used cinnamon applesauce and splenda instead of the white sugar. i also made a half batch without chocolate chips for my milk-allergic daughter, so i love that this recipe doesn't include butter so she can enjoy too! i baked mine for 7 minutes and they stayed pretty soft, as we like them. they're enough to curb the sweet tooth without the major guilt trip later :)
I made these cookies with figs instead of dried cranberries and they turned out wonderful with a pleasant chewy texture that I like to have in a cookie. My friend next door said they were delicious and healthy to boot.
Fantastic! I made a few revisions because I baked these at home during a snow day and I think they turned out amazing! I added one over ripe banana, some coconut, and substituted golden raisins and dried blueberries for the cranberries. Really folks, OUTSTANDING!!!!
These are very good! I'm a health nut and am always looking for healthy alternatives to cookies and these are it! I didn't add quite as many chocolate chips though and they were really good. I did find that for my first batch 10 minutes was too long because they got a little dried out, but 9 minutes was perfect. I will be making these again!
Excellent! I baked for 11 minutes. Used pecans instead of walnuts. These are as good as any full fat cookies I have made.
