    This looks good. I'm going to try and tweak a little more -maybe some coconut flour/ spelt flour? I'll report back! :) - 5/1/09

    I actually used 1/2 cup whole wheat flour in lieu of 1/2 cup of white today, and it turned out excellent. I probably use a tad less than 1.5 cups altogether, too. We like it moist and dense, which is good cuz I don't eat more than a cheese cube sized piece at a time. Can't wait to see what u do!
