    I plugged in the recipe at caloriecount.about.com and it says 95 calories. I am not sure though how accurate that is. We will consider including this in the future post.

    To lower the carb count, but keep the flavor and moisture would be to replace the sugar with liquid splenda (usually 24-28 drops) and add a tablespoon of blackstrap molasses. The molasses is 11g of carbs, but if this makes 24 cookies, then the carb impact per cookie is negligible.

      Splenda is poison. It’s a man-made chemical and is extremely bad for your body! Google the effects it has on your liver and kidneys. Just saying… :)
