I altered this recipe last night with great success. The finished product is more like a blondie than a cookie bar I guess, but it's still really tasty.



I forgot to add the coconut into mine; I also wish I had throw some flax seeds in there as well. I can see the recipe being good with a little cinnamon mixed in. I only used 1.5 C. zucchini (all I had), but I wouldn't mind having more mixed in the batter. This might throw off the consistency and the soymilk may not be necessary, but I've come to find that using the Ener-G replaces reduces the moisture (from 2 regular eggs), so one must compensate. Bah. I digress...



I hope you enjoy this recipe!



Cheers!
