The ones on the left were made with stevia. To add bulk, I used mashed pumpkin. My dough was too stiff and didn't spread out at all. My children said they tasted like pumpkin muffins - and liked them! Next time I'll try yogurt and see if I can get the cookies to spread out more.
The cookies on the right were made with honey. They baked as flat as a pancake but tasted delicious! I did not decrease the liquid as Regina recommended. Next time I'll cut back on the butter to make up for the liquid in the honey.
Because there will be a next time! My children didn't care if they were flat or rounded! With a little practice I think I can improve the texture and have a perfect naturally sweetened cookie!
Maybe you were like me, you read about Regina's chocolate chip cookie experiments and wished to try her recipe!
I asked for it...and Regina agreed to share it with us!
