Reviews for Lactose-Free Chocolate Chip Cookies
"Haven't made these yet just found it funny that they are lactose free cookies and the picture looks as if they are dipping them in milk."
"Agreed, there is a lot of sugar, but it's a cookie, and once in awhile who cares?!My 3 year old son is allergic to milk, eggs and nuts....he loves to help me make these....and loves to eat them even more!!I have also used half whole wheat flour as well and it's tasty."
"Our family has multiple food allergies. Eggs are definitely out and it is difficult to find good substitutes. This recipe, while very sweet, meets the need. Because it is so sweet, I can eat one small cookie and be satisfied. We've made it several times."
"I realize this recipe is focusing on being lactose free but there is so much sugar in the recipe between the maple syrup and the granulated sugar plus 147 calories per cookie seems like a lot for a diet. I really do appreciate the 1400 calorie menus. They are great and I hope the magazine continues them in future issues."
