    Did these with coconut oil and added coriander and fresh grated ginger. They are fantastic! I used dried pineapple because it seemed to go better with ginger flavor. - 4/16/07

    I made them and used Chinese Five spice. I just had a problem with them being crumbly, AND eating too many. Yummy. Who needs the coffee! - 10/25/08

    I made this and added a few semi-sweet chocolate chips, next time I will add more spices. I really like a strong gingerbread flavor and this one was a little bland for me. This recipe could be adapted for a pumpkin pie spice biscotti, which I will also try! - 12/29/07

  • Just made these and they are great. I used the unsweetened applesauce and they are just sweet enough. I also liked including the whole wheat flour but I had to cut them a little thicker because they seemed to crumbly to cut 1/2 inch. - 4/8/07
