    Good, but a touch bland - I think they need a dash of salt, or cinnamon, or even a wee bit of sugar - something. Great texture, though! - 8/20/08

    I made these for my child who has an impacted colon (eww, I know) Goodness, they're bitter! Even after smothering them in honey, I can barely choke one down so I know she won't eat them. I don't bake much (too precise) so can someone suggest what I can do to make this recipe a little more palatable? - 10/26/11

    Your calorie calculations are way off! The flours are definitely wrong - should be 1.5C for the whole wheat and .66C for the soy - 1/26/11

    Very Good
    These did come out a bit bitter for me, but I also think that that is just the nature of bran. However, I used my own applesause (In which I used only apples, no sweetener). The remaning dough I added honey to and they came out great, of course it will change the nutritional info a bit. - 10/18/07

    These came out very bitter for me; did I do something wrong, or is the wheat bran just really bitter?
