Rubbery cookies--What did I do wrong?

Let me preface my question by stating that I'm new to this lifestyle and new

came out kind of rubbery.  The directions say to bake them 10-20 minutes.  I 
baked them for 15 minutes.  I must add that I didn't have any difficulty 
eating a couple (for research purposes only, of course!), although I'd 
probably add a little more of the spices to give them a bolder flavor.

Did I do something wrong, or do cookies without fat have a rubbery texture to
