    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).
    For every 1/4th cup of honey or sugar, I substitute six drops of liquid stevia (I use sweetleaf brand). Stevia is extremely heat stable and will not break down or denature in any reasonable amount of heat.

    For these cookies I used a total of 24 drops of Stevia, but I think I could have used less as the cocoa powder added enough flavor that some could be removed without noticing.

    edit: Oh yeah, I forgot.. if you remove the honey, I really suggest adding in another egg yolk for a binder because the honey did a great job holding all this goop together.

        I really liked the original recipe - but it's in my nature to play with things. I sub'd 1/4 pecan meal and added 1/4 cup shredded coconut. Cut honey to 2 TBS. Used 2 eggs instead of one, added 2 TBS coconut oil. Awesome and they spread.

          these have my seal of approval - very tasty. i added extra cinnamon (cause i love cinnamon), used cocao nibs instead of pecans cause i like them better too, and used maple syrup instead of honey because that's what i had on hand. also used a little extra vanilla cause i love that too.

            I was thinking 1/4 cup of honey seemed like a lot, so I love FL Kirkland's subs. Thanks.

              Curious as to how they turned out without the baking soda. I made them today (with a sugar free maple syrup - yes, the evils of Splenda!) and they turned out to be VERY dangerous to have around. I do like the consistency with the bs, but I may try them without next time just to see.

              Thanks for the recipe!

                        These were really good! They were ready shortly after we finished dinner so I could only eat three of them. They will go really nice with my tea tomorrow morning.

                          I'm impressed that you were able to stop at 3!

                            Excellent recipe and easy to make, thanks very much! I added coconut, chocolate chips and dried cranberries to mine. I also cooked them on a stoneware sheet spreading out the mixture to make squares instead of cookies and didn't need the parchment paper. Added about 3 minutes to the cooking time.

                                I've made these cookies over and over and their awesome! My husband loves them! Once I accidently put nutmeg and cinnamon and it was delicious! I also add dark choc. chips.
                                I've tried lots of primal cookie recipies and this one is by far the easiest and tastiest!
                                Thank you soooo much!
