please correct this error in 12 Steps

By Robyn Openshaw, MSW | May 18, 2010

If you have 12 Steps to Whole Foods (digital download, manual, or Complete Course), a few readers have pointed out an error in a recipe:

In the Chocolate Chip Zucchini Cookies in Chapter 11, I inadvertently omitted

1 1/2 cups of water.

Please write that into the recipe on p. 216. Add it after the coconut oil/Sucanat.

By the way, when I tested the recipe yesterday to ascertain what the missing liquid should be, I also substituted unprocessed, organic coconut sugar for the Sucanat. It has a lower glycemic index score. (It’s 35 compared to honey and cane sugar’s 55 to 68. Sucanat is raw cane sugar.)

In the chocolate chip zucchini cookie recipe, I augment the sweetener with stevia to keep sugar minimal but cookies sweet.

Please forgive me for the error!

    how much stevia do you add and how much sugar to you then decrease if adding stevia? Can you use just stevia? If so, how much? Thanks!

      Leslee, the stevia is already in the recipe. 🙂

  2. SLAW,

    refer to ehow.com or netlingo.com for help on this texting language stuff.

    I am a geezer getting it together, maybe!

    Blessings and peace and joy and raw….for life now and forever!

    Robyn, if you substitute unprocessed, organic coconut sugar for the Sucanat, do you still use the same amount (1-1/2 C)?

    (Yes, this is “that” Deb 🙂
