while making these i had to add a bit of coconut milk as i was mixing the batter b/c it was too crumbly despite having followed the recipe exactly. when i added the milk it came together into a stiff dough. i also found that I had to bake them a bit longer than suggested. A bit less sugar and salt next time b/c those flavors were rather over-powering but still a very good cookie.
made them and enjoyed them
I did something wrong...
I folllowed this recipe exactly but my results were so much different from everyone else! The dough was so hard to combine near the end, it was SO thick. I ended up adding a little bit of water to help mix everything and that was a HUGE mistake- the dough turned into a paste that was impossible to mold into a ball or even get off my hand. Maybe I used too much butter?? I baked them anyway but I'm nervous to taste them...
I am new to the healthy eating scene and was craving cookies, so I decided to try healthy chocolate chip cookies. While kneading the dough, I noticed it was crumbly and pretty dry. The dough smelled great (as well as my kitchen) but when I checked the cookies 8-minutes into baking, they had not started flattening. Help anyone??? I'd really like some cookies without a side of guilt :)
Harder than desired the next day
These were easy to make and I loved them immediately out of the oven, however the next day they were harder than a brick bat, as my Grandmother used to say! Still edible but ultra crunchy. I baked them for the indicated time at 25 degrees lower, because my oven's a bit hot. I think I should shorten the cook time and see if they would be softer the next day. Are they usually soft the next day? Oh, the only thing I did differently was I used Flax Meal not Golden Flax meal. I used Earth Balance Buttery Sticks. Thanks.
