    Very good but not overly sweet. A good "healthy" version of the original. - 8/16/09

  • Very good! Nice "healthy" taste but still feels like a treat. I substitued applesauce for half of the oil to cut down a little more on cal/fat. Of coure, then we added frosting so what good did that do?? :) Yummy!! - 4/3/09

    Loved the cookies. I actually skimped on the sugar and the veg oil, no salt and they were still great! My kids loved them.. they are used to the grainy texture and taste of the whole wheat flour, but I did substitue a little bit of white for wheat... not much, but just enough to take the edge off. - 1/17/09

    I, too, had grainy cookies, which my kids wouldn't eat. Any ideas why they were grainy? - 11/2/08
