    Wow. Really yummy! I know they'd turn out less cookie-ish, but I still went with 1/2 cup butter and 1/2 cup unsweetened apple sauce to cut down some fat. They did come out much cakier than I though they would doing this. Next time I'll just make this recipe in a cake pan or as cupcakes. Also didn't have any pumpkin seeds, so I used what almonds I had and made up the rest of the amount with dried dates I had on hand. And I used rolled oats (not the quick ones. One thing I didn't think about (FYI for you guys is to allow the lentils to cool before adding the chips because they wound up melting.

    I am eating them hot out of the oven & loving them. Ill update my review once they are cooled. I made a few changes: I used green lentils, finely slivered almonds, raw pumpkin seeds, 60% cocoa chips, rolled oats (not quick), & 1/2c peanut buttter & 1/2c of butter. I sprinkled the tops with coarse sea salt. I guestimated the values & came up with roughly 4,250 calories, 95g fiber, 135g protien for the batch. I found I only needed to cook them for 11 minutes.

    I thought these were delicious (especially considering they include healthier ingredients than traditional chocolate chip cookies). I substituted walnuts for the almonds and pumpkin seeds because that's what I had in the house. I also added coarse sea salt to the top of the cookies. After tasting the first batch out of the oven I thought they needed salt but it was too late to add it to the batter. They were wonderful with the added salt!

    This recipe is very different from my normal dessert favorites, but I have a toddler and thought this recipe looked like a nutritious snack option. We both love these cookies! I followed the recipe exactly with the exception of cooking the lentils a day before. We will definitely make these again. Enjoy!

    Awesome cookies. I have made them three time already. The first two times they didn't hold together. They were crumbs, delicious crumbs, instead of cookies. This last time I made them I added an extra egg and a teaspoon of cinnamon, they turned out great. They stayed together. My three year old picky eater and her friends love them. These will be a staple in our house.
