    This is a good way to get in fat. These are great, but wasn’t sweet enough for me. I sprinkled sweetener on top of cookie. Next time adding more sweetener. They came out of the oven chewy and they were great, but I prefer my cookies crisp, so I left them out of container. Very crspy.

        Instead of xylitol can I use organic powder stevia?

          I imagine it will work too, I used allulose and stevia, worked great.

          Hi, I have not tried the recipe using peanut butter so I am unable to say for sure if it would work. It would also increase the carb count so you would need to factor this in. Hope this helps.

        I added about a 1/4 tsp of nutmeg...awesome!! Also, I didn’t bake until firm and that helped them not be dry

        I've just made these without the liquid sweetener as the only type I can get is so tinny and horrid to the taste...added a glug of natural honey...seems to taste ok...lets see how they are when they come out the oven!

          I prefer not using sweeteners of any kind. Will this still work??

          • recipewriter

            I have not tried them without any sweetener, however I think it would definitely be worth a try. You could perhaps add a little extra cinnamon or maybe even try making them with cashew butter or pecan butter as they are naturally a little sweeter than almond butter. They may come out a little more chewy without the sweetener but I think they would still hold. Let us know how you get on!
