    I will definitely make these again! I got my chocolate fix and I even left the chocolate chips out to save on calories. I was looking for a healthy flax recipe & this rates - moist and delicious! - 1/7/10

    Very Good
    My picky eater son rates it at 4.7 out of 5... he is eating 3 at once (and topping them with cool whip - good thing he doesn't have any weight issues). He says I HAVE to make them again.

    These were easy to make. I did use Splenda instead of sugar and put extra chocolate chips.
