    I was excited about this recipe until I read the reviews. Is too much work for me to end up with a bum deal...I don't like cooking much anyway. I am going to try using my regular recipe with better ingredients as suggested by I8N8N8 - but will check calorie content first. - 3/20/08

    I tried this recipe and found it tasteless. It was too dry. I liked the calorie content as I could have two but was not worth it. Threw 1/2 of them away. - 3/10/07

    My apologies to the poster of this recipe, but these cookies are disgusting (even with chocolate chips added). They're almost tasteless. I know they're "diet" cookies, but 1/3 cup of sugar is not enough for this recipe, for starters. - 8/11/09

    Change: butter to reduced cal. margarine, sugar to splenda, flour to whole wheat flour and reduce the calories to 40 per cookie, 1g of fat, 4.7 carbs. - 8/26/07

  • I don't want to sound mean, but I did make this and it came out kind of dry and I didn't like it. I added some crunchy peanut butter to the remaining batter and it was okay.. better, but still just okay. - 3/27/11

  • I just tried this recipe. I don't know if the developer has changed it since all of the bad reviews, or if people failed to read "add remaining flour gradually until..." but I love this recipe! I added the same amount of nutmeg as the cinnamon and plan to have them for a yummy, low carb, breakfast. - 2/20/11
