    These are OUTSTANDING! I had to sub unsweetened applesauce for the juice and reduced the syrups in half (my own preference on sweetness level). Just when you think having something high in protein, soft and yummy wasn't possible without the calories of flour. Everyone has to make these. Thanks Gem! - 10/10/07

    I would follow what the others said about changing up the syrups. I used a 1/2 cup carmel and 1/2 cup vanilla (because that's what our grocery store carried), and the splenda flavor overwhelmed all the other flavors. It's a good base and I will keep tweeking it. Thanks for posing this recipie:)

    You can buy the coffee flavors from a Cash N Carry (WA State) or other restaurant supplier/grocery store. Caramel, Raspberry, Vanilla and Hazelnut can be purchased in the coffee section of any grocery store. - 10/2/09
