These tasted more like granola bars but I liked them anyway. Since I'm allergic to pecans I used hazelnuts. I think next time I make them I'll use almonds and maybe some dried fruit. The hazelnuts were good but it's a pretty strong flavor. Read More

I wish that recipes would specify cup to cup artificial sweetener or the kind that one uses much less to make up a cup. Read More

Really good! As others said a bit crumbly (and I wouldn't call them macaroons at all just a cookie) but really a good flavor. I would even reduce the sweetener a little. I want to try subbing apple sauce for some of the oil - it might make them stick together a bit. Used pecans - totally delicious. Read More

These taste awesome but I couldn't get them to stay together. Any ideas? I eventually just made one big one and when I went to cut it (while hot) it just kinda crumbled everywhere but it still taste great! Read More
