  1. My vanilla protein powder is EXTRA sweet. Think I can decrease/omit the stevia in this recipe without negatively impacting the texture?

  2. I tried making these this morning. The batter tasted great and they smelled amazing while they were baking. I ended up baking them for close to 50 minutes and they still came out gooey in the middle. I'm not sure what I did wrong but I wish they'd turned out!

  3. How many does this recipe make? I have looked but didn't see it.

  4. The first time I made these, they turned out great. Everytime after, I also cook for nearly 50 min and they are gooey in the center. I tried fresh vs frozen cranberries and it didn't seem to make a difference. Any ideas?

  5. How can i print your recipes so they are big enough to read you don't have a print button or pdf? Thank you Patty

  6. I'm putting mine back in the oven...gooey too!

  7. I made these this morning and realized after they were in the oven that i forgot to add the almond milk. They turned out amazing, however! I baked them for 20 minutes and they were perfect. I'll definitely be making these again.
