I have now made these several times. AWSOME & EASY. Changing back & forth from pecan meal to almond meal. Changing the chopped nuts also. I suggest cutting the honey in 1/2 if you are primal. otherwise they are to sweet.
I made these last week and they were really good, although I think I will go lighter on the sweetener next time! I NEVER thought I would hear those words coming out of my mouth! Me, wanting something less sweet? Whodathunkit?
These were my variations:
Intentional: Subbed maple syrup for half the honey, and Added 2-3 Tablespoons of BUTTER. Solves the sticking problem, although parchment is still recommended
Unintentional: Totally FORGOT the egg. No biggie, they just aren't as cakey this way. So if you like a chewy, crunchy cookie this works
oh, and p.s. The dough is FAB!!! I was thinking of just freezing the dough balls and eating them straight out of the freezer. And I do sometimes freeze dough balls and bake them one or two at a time. Fresh cookies right out of the oven every time
I just made these! I added 3 tablespoons of butter like a pp suggested and I had NO sticking problems! As a pp mentioned, I too will squash mine a little since they don't flatten in the oven like traditional cookies do (but I kind of liked the balls). I also put some choco chips in mine and they were fantastic.
I'm feeling like they tasted a lot like oatmeal cookies. I might experiment with them further to see if I can make these as a primal substitute!
Side Note: I love the primal community for many reasons. One is getting recipes in smaller sizes so when my husband and I eat half the batch of cookies, it isn't something to feel guilty about
I'm curious about starting to use Stevia in my baked goods - any suggestions on brands? Powder or liquid drops?
The butter is definitely a good addition since the cookies can be quite sticky (especially if you are going with honey as the sweetener).
Also these cookies make awesome ice cream sandwiches when you add a dollop of vanilla coconut milk ice cream (preferably homemade).
