Preheat oven to 375ºF.

In a large bowl, combine dry ingredients.

In a separate bowl mix all wet ingredients and half of the milk and add them to the dry ingredients and stir just to combine.

If necessary, add remaining milk, but make sure you do not make it too liquid.

Scoop tablespoon sized portions on greased baking sheet and bake for 12 minutes.

If you want a softer cookie, bake 8 - 10 minutes, and for more crisp cookies 16-20 minutes, but I find it perfect baked for 15 minutes.

Sweetener Notes: For no-added calories, try using: MonkSweet+, Steviva Blend, or SteviaSweet! If you desire a reduced-sugar option, use CocoSweet+ or Fructevia.
