I followed the suggestion and used 1/2 teaspoon of salt and they worked for me without salty flavor. For being low fat they are pretty good. Lighter texture and a light chocolate flavor.

I think it's supposed to be 1/2 tsp salt. That's what I used and these came out lovely.

I haven't even baked these things yet and I have to agree on the salt part. I used the 2 teaspoons that were called for in the recipe (I double checked to make sure!!) and I can actually taste the salt!!! I'm going to bake them anyway, but I'm definitely NOT excited anymore!
