Not even kidding! I do 1/4c choc chips and 1/4-1/2c walnuts. I think subbing applesauce for the oil works as well but haven't tried that yet. I've also subbed raisins for the dates and they were still good. So the choc chips have sugar, but as far as I can tell they are still devoid of animal products. Someone correct me if I'm wrong. I forget the brand name I buy but it's the red bag and they are super dark chocolate. Sunny needs to post her homemade chocolate recipe! Honestly you can make these without any chocolate at all and they will still be good. OR use cocoa powder instead of chocolate chips.. mmm..
