Love them. I have a program that adds up all the calories for me with the ingredients that I use and they came out at 58 calories using this recipe. It also has 6 g carbs, 1g fiber, 3.4 g fat, and 2.4 g protein

Read more carefully, the recipe calls for sugar SUBSTITUTE (like Splenda) NOT sugar.

Why do some of you say "too much sugar"?? There is NO SUGAR. Uses sugar sub like Splenda.

If you like coffee flavor, you will like them. they are moist and chewy but I hate coffee so I need one without the coffee taste. Anyone have any ideas if they will still be good if I take the coffee out?
