Hey ladies...I've made this recipe twice now, with pretty good results, so I thought I'd post my recipe for the BF mommas out there that want to try these. I should point out a couple of things: #1: They're clearly a "health" cookie. Which means, they don't exactly make me squee my pants in joy, but they're still tasty enough to kill my sweet tooth. They way I figure it, if I'm going to be eating sweet stuff (and I am) - then I might as well be eating stuff that is helpful for me in some way...
#2: I made a couple of changes to the straight up recipe, which worked for me. I added fenugreek to the dry ingredients in the recipe (about 10 capsules worth of fenugreek), and I used splenda as a substitute for the white sugar. (Cutting sugar calories?) I also threw some cinnamon in on my second batch, but didn't discern a noticable difference in flavor.
Hope you enjoy!
