Followed the recipe exactly. The salt on top is necessary. These were yummy straight out of the oven while warm.

We loved these. The salt is a MUST. I had to add quite a bit more olive oil than called for. My mixture was too dry. But, the end result was great. Heart healthy!

This is my third time making them. Greatly satisfying for cookie taste, but with a sophisticated olive-oil induced deepness. (I've added dark chocolate chunks a couple times without changing anything else and it works great) <br />
