Rated 5 out of 5 by from Chocolate Goodness I followed the recipe and used quality Dutch Coco and I added a TBSP of finely ground Starbucks Christmas Espresso blend whole beans. I ground the beans until they were like powder and added it to the dry ingredients. When I brushed the cool down cookies with the Truvia & water mixture I added the salt and then red and green sprinkles for Christmas.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Made with out sugar and dairy! So what is a vegan to do, with a terrible sweet tooth? Make cookies of course! This recipe is pretty straight forward . I subbed vegan butter (can also use coconut oil ) for the butter and subbed mashed bananas for the egg and instead of water I used full fat coconut milk because, why not ? Very tasty low sugar and satiated my chocolate craving

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rave Reviews from my bookclub!!! I made three s dozen of these decadent cookies for my bookclub night and they disappeared before we finished discussing the first chapter! When I was asked for the recipe, shock and surprise was written over each face as they realized that these goodies were made with Truvia!!! I think you have a few more new converts! Keep tasting so great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Addictive The chocolate flavor is truly present in the finished product. This is probably due to the cocoa powder and the contrasting sweet/saltiness of the Truvia and sea salt combination. My husband and son actually request that I make these again and again. Definitely not a typical reaction to my cooking or baking!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tastes like a cookie from a fancy bakery Fabulous recipe! These are the best low-sugar cookies I've tasted. If you are a chocolate lover, this is the cookie for you. I made one change to the recipe - I used cold coffee instead of water when applying the salt to the cookies at the end.
