  3. Hi.
    Just thought I would let you know. You have forgotten to include the chocolate into the method. Just made them and they are awesome.
    Thanks for the recipe.

  5. Yum, these are delicious! I used tapioca flour and increased the amount of almond flour (maybe by 1/2 cup?) and they were perfect. Thanks gals 🙂

  6. Hey girls love all your recipes! I just bought a big bag of banana flour the other week. I think from what I’ve read it’s paleo.. Have you girls got any recipes using it? You guys are my go to for healthy treats so thought I’d ask! Otherwise do you think I could substitute the cassava flour in this recipe with it?

    Thanks!

    We have cooked with banana flour but we don’t have a lot of recipes! We think it would make a perfect swap to cassava flour. BUT… we haven’t tried it so give it a go and let us know! YUM!

  9. Mine weren’t quite so pretty as yours, but they tasted amazing!! I quickly made them for morning tea (my visitor came early so we ate them warm 🙂

    My mixture was really sticky, so I was having my doubts… but I should have known better! Delicious – thank you ladies! x

  15. A few months back the doc said I wasnt allowed gluten, dairy, sugar, booze or caffeine, I looked at him like he had just kicked my puppy and told me I was dying. Ridiculous that I even wasted a minute on that thought, your cook book (kindly gifted at the EDB conference – #THANKYOU) and recipes like this have been wonderful, amazing and oh so delicious. I cant remember why I even ate bad food. Gorgeous recipe gals, as always, cant wait to try these beauties. 🙂

  16. Just made and delicious. Only thing was I used cacao wafers chopped up and they were a bit bitter. What chocolate do you use?

  23. These are delicious. Had no almond meal but a heap of cashews in the cupboard, whizzed them up in my thermomix and used them instead. Mixture was very runny so I ended up using about 1 1/2 C cashew meal. So easy, will definitely be making these again.

  26. These are just superb! I’m glad I read through all the comments – substitute sunflower seeds for tapioca… Added some oil… Substituted 2 medjool dates for the sweetener…. Because we are in a cabin on holidays and don’t have anything in the pantry. And these cookies worked out perfectly!! Thank you for the recipe. Love all of your work 🙂

  32. Can you use coconut flour to substitute for the tapioca flour? Or just more almond meal? I don’t have tapioca or cassava flour and I’m loathe to buy more types when i could just use what I have in ny cupboard. Please advise.

    Hi Kate, we are not 100% sure. Tapioca may work best. With almond meal you may need more as coconut flour is much drier. Let us know how you go!

  34. I made these with ground sunflower seeds instead of the almond meal, and they worked very well!!

  35. I am allergic to nuts. Is there a diff type of flour i can replace almond meal with? Thanks!

    Hey Deanna, you can get it online from Pantry Innovations! However, tapioca and arrowroot work fine and they are available from your health food store/supermarket in the baking aisle 🙂

  39. my cookies look nothing like yours 🙁 they are super flat. Used almond flour and tapioca starch and the mixture was very runny. They just came out of the oven so haven’t tried them yet

    Hey Fran! Not sure what happened, ours have worked each time. Hopefully they were yummy still, even if they did not look exactly likes ours 🙂

  41. Mine didnt look as good as yours but they tasted great! I had to add extra tapioca as the mixture was too runny but came out surprisingly great!
