A busy competitive figure skater came up with this high-energy recipe herself. The cookies are loaded with nuts, chips and fabulous flavor. Coaches at her skating rink are always snitching two or three when she brings them in! —Cassandraa Brzycki, Wauwatosa, Wisconsin

"This is a really great recipe! The cookies definitely have a soft and chewy texture, but for me that's a good thing. They were moist, didn't crumble, and were not at all greasy. Very good!"

"These are great when room temp, not so much fresh out of the oven. I sub whole wheat flour, coconut oil, and add a few tablespoons of flax seed. Today I didn't have any non-dairy milk, so I substituted my hazelnut soy creamer and they turned out to be my best batch yet. These are not greasy, crumbly, or overly chewy! Love this recipe, thank you!"

"My family loves these. I've made them several times and they always turn out great. We prefer these to the Nestle recipe any day. Soft and chewy, and they're easy to make. Thanks for the recipe."

"absolutely horrible. don't know who made this recipe but my cookie dough was crumbly and had a hard time sticking. and also, THE COOKIES DON'T EXPAND LIKE NORMAL COOKIES. So thanks to this recipe I was left with cookie balls that crumbled the second you attempted to pick them up. Also way too soft/chewy. I've had tons of vegan baked goods and this was the worst. whoever wrote this recipe must've been blind when they did it."
