I am planning on making some of these (inside) for Christmas gifts but want some without the nuts, so I am looking for a nut alternative ingredient or how should I adjust the recipe to omit the nuts?

you can simply leave the nuts out and maybe 1/4 c. more chips.

what about mini marshmallows?

I like the marshmallow idea but never made cookies using them. Hope someone sees and can enlighten us both. I like the rice krispie addition that sassy suggests too. Good idea.

would rice krispies work in a cookie? Honeycomb bits......

Marshmallows melt and leave pockets or holes in the baked dough.

Rice Krispies work we'll in cookies, they stay Krispies too or at least the ones I had did.

Lots of ideas here.....

Rice krispies or grape nuts? Something crunchy. I don't know if I would just omit them, 1/2 cup is quite a hole to fill in.

was thinking of increasing cranberries and adding dark choc chips too....
Nov. 15, 2012 4:41 pm
Mmmm, that would be good too, love dark chocolate.

OMG Misty I love that link!!

What about a 1/4 t of both nutmeg and cinnamon for a festive flavour.....
Nov. 15, 2012 4:47 pm
I don't like nutmeg, and have never made these, tweak away!
Nov. 15, 2012 4:49 pm
LOL Sassy!!

Honeycomb bits would be good!

Been away from kids cereal too long. Well....except for the Frosted Flakes :)

You can omit the nuts without any problems. If you start adding dry ingredients that are flour based you may need to add a bit more fat (eggs/butter) or you may end up with a dry cookie.
