    It is a great way to indulge and have portion control at the same time! Why get stressed out about indulging? Those who have long term success with weight loss will agree, occasional splurges are part of life. Total deprivation of treats will only backfire in the end. - 6/6/13

    My comment is for those who like to be so critical, you don't have to make it. Everyone on Spark is not on the same diet. This recipe works well as is. For those who can eat the ingredients and calories, why not? I agree with the moderation idea and normal ingredients. - 6/6/13

    For those who are critical: If you're afraid of 224 calories and an occasional sweet splurge, then have you really come to terms with changing your lifestyle for permanent weight loss? When the urge for chocolate cake hits I would rather make and eat something like this, which is real food. - 7/7/13

    moderation people... personally, I have made these in the past and they are a great way to have a one time treat with no leftovers to temp you later. - 6/6/13

    *THIS RECIPE WAS CHANGED AFTER ALL THE CRITICISM.* I do a gluten-free version with flax meal, almond flour & stevia. It's still high in calories because of the flax & almond flour, but it's really high in fiber & omegas. Whether you make it with healthier options or not, it's still an easy recipe. - 6/6/13
