    These are delicious, quick and easy to make.I have been making a variation of these for some years now and everyone always asks for the recipe. I have to admin, these are better than mine---New recipe from now on.By the way, for RobbieGration, I have added up the fiber and it amounts to about 4.2 grams per cookie.Definitely will make again

    Not a review, rather a question . . . The recipe looks wonderful and I guessed it would have a lot of fiber, however it says 0g fiber, any thoughts anyone?
