Easy Almond Thin Cookies

Rated as 4.27 out of 5 Stars

"I was looking for a mildly sweet treat to have with tea that wasn't filled with butter or artificial ingredients in general. These are delicious! They happen to be paleo-friendly as well. The best things really are the simplest. I like coconut sugar because it's less sweet, but any sugar would work. These cookies freeze really well."

Really very good, I didn't have coconut sugar so I used honey. If you use honey, use less honey then called for.

I'm hoping I did something terribly wrong because most of the reviews were great while mine will be horrible. I doubled the recipe but only used half the coconut sugar. The result was a crumble...

This is definitely an easy and fast treat to put together made with ingredients that I always have on hand. It also bakes in no time, so as a last minute crave-buster, this is a winner. I halved...

Yum! Use heaping spoonful of honey instead of coconut sugar and add Chia seeds. Make 'em with my toddler---he loves it!

I doubled the recipe for a thicker cookie/bar and used white sugar instead of coconut sugar (which I did not have). Everybody raved over these. I'd say they are addicting!

I will try again, perhaps multiplying the recipe by 4 to make it thicker in that 8x8 pan! We all loved it, but nobody had nearly enough!

I love love love almonds so was so happy to find this recipe. I quadrupled the recipe and used only half a cup of brown sugar. This made it just sweet enough for my taste! I just spread it on...

I made these last night. Tasted great! I used about 1/16cup less coconut sugar. Next time I will use parchment muffin liners and 1/8th cup coconut sugar.
