The thicker, richer, moister, denser and more jam packed a "nut cookie" is...the more we love it! These hit our mark...and surpassed our expectations...thank you!!!
Honestly...we "kick it up a notch with dark chocolate chunks...and sometimes coconut...I also sprinkle with salt or sugar...depending my cravings.
These are simple to make and taste great. I dipped mine in some almond milk. They were a little crumbly but they were moist and tasty. Way better than most flourless cookie options.
My review is not comparing these at all to other cookies, but comparing them to other Paleo type cookies or desserts. They very much taste like, what they are, baked cashew butter with some added ingredients for texture. It's like peanut butter but much more mild. I followed the recipe exactly, except I made my own cashew butter in my Vitamix machine. My cashews were salted, which I thought would work well. It appears every Paleo recipe I have tested doesn't seem to have salt. I think, they probably needed it even if it is not paleo friendly. I got 14 cookies using a standard cookie scoop. Edit note: Although, I thought they were allright, no one else would eat them. They thought they were too doughy and heavy. They are on board with the light texture of flour, that nuts made into butter apparentely are just missing.
