Thank you so much for this healthy alternative to chocolate chip cookies! Made these to the exact recipe, cooked them for 10 mins and they came out to perfection, soft centers with crisp edges! My batch made 16 cookies, I will double it next time because with my family of 5 they won't last the day! Read More

These are neither bad nor good. They're lightly sweet and taste mainly of nut butter. But the texture is very crumbly. I tried a couple different temperature and time combinations and couldn't improve on the texture. Read More

I made these with Jif All Natural Peanut Butter because I didn't have any Almond Butter (and it was crazy expensive at the store!). I baked the first batch for the full 8 minutes, but they were too dark on the bottom and had a few burned spots on the top, so I baked the second batch for 5 minutes and let them rest on the pan for another 2 minutes before moving them. They were still extremely gooey, but a beautiful golden brown and firmed up nicely. My middle son ate that whole second batch (6 cookies!!). I added a 1/2 cup of chocolate chips instead (because I LOVE chocolate chips). I did use Nestle Semi-Sweet because I really wanted a cookie recipe that just didn't have flour. This FIT the bill!! My dad is allergic to wheat, and he thought they were really good. I think you could really do a lot of different things with this base cookie recipe. Loved it! Thanks so much!! Read More

My kids liked them after I explained that these were not store bought cookies. I told them that since they were made with honey instead of sugar they could eat as many as they wanted. They loved that. I also added a teaspoon of coconut oil for a little extra sweetness and moisture. I used peanut butter when the cashew butter ran out and they were still awesome. Read More

I rarely write reviews but these cookies were so good I felt compelled to rate them. Most paleo treats are lack luster but not these. They are moist and a real treat. Read More

Absolutely LOVED this recipe! I have a HUGE sweet tooth and I love this recipe! Although I added some things to it because I found that the first time I baked this it was too dry. So I added 1/2 cup of shredded sugar free coconut to make it moist and I added 1/2 cup of flax seeds for some fiber! My to go cookies when I'm losing weight and want something sweet! Read More
