    would you say regular almond butter would work ? I guess the color of the cookie would be darker..

    anyhebert  Yes, they would be slightly darker, but almond butter would work fine!

    These sound sooo good! The best thing is you don’t have to feel guilty afterwards!

    Hi, my batter was very runny so I made cupcakes rather than biscuits. There was no way I could have rolled it into balls. I also added cocoa into the batter as youngest won’t eat choc pieces??!! Taste yummy! Thanks

    I made them this morning and they are delicious. Thank you for the recipe. I might try adding a little unsweetened coconut next time. :)

    Will egg replacer or a chia egg work in these?

    Yet another one of your recipes that has moved to my “successful paleo recipes” board. My cookies/scones came out darker than yours (I used regular un blanched almond butter) and they do have a very scone-y consistency, I used arrowroot flour for mine. These get an A+ and I can’t wait to see what else you have in store for us

    This is EXACTLY what I was looking for: a cookie I could shape into hearts without a cookie cutter! They came out perfectly. I made two batches and added 1.5 tbsp carob powder to them. Yum!

    if I am not needing to be complete paleo could I use 2 TBS of regular flour in place of the tapioca? wanted to ask before I waste a bunch of other ingredients

      Tapioca is a very light flour, probably wouldn’t work. Do you have potato starch (not flour) or arrowroot powder/flour? Those would work…

    Thanks for the recipe. I’ve just made them with roasted almond butter, and my son loves them! I’m very pleased as they are not that sweet, but very tasty! I added some homemade choc chips. Will definitely make them again.

    Looks great! I was looking for a cookie recipe without coconut or almond flours =)

    I’m trying to find one that is also nut-free. Do you think I can use sun butter instead almond butter? It’s thicker so maybe I’ll use less of it and add some water?

    What do you think?

      I think it would work. You want the consistency of cookie dough…so keep that in mind.

    Thank you for this recipe! I used tahini instead of almond butter because that’s what I had on hand and they came out great, almost tasted like peanut butter!

    This is the recipe I have been looking for as I am allergic to tree nuts and coconut. I have done a lot of trial and error, but with this recipe I would just swap one equal ingredient for another (sun butter). Can’t wait to try this recipe!

    Just recalled that sun butter and baking soda will turn the cookies green and greener as time goes by. Perhaps I could try apple butter or pumpkin puree.

    I tried the apple butter and used 4tablespoons of arrowroot. It was too runny so made as cupcakes. I cooked for 17 minutes and still gooey so perhaps need a lot more starch when using apple butter.

      Apple butter does not have the fat needed for these muffins and unfortunately will not work.

    This is not anywhere near a consistency to roll into a ball? I had to add ground flax seed & coconut flour & a fourth T of tapioca flour, but it was still too sticky and wet?

      If it isn’t the consistency to roll, that is fine, just spoon them on.

    I just made them but had to use cashew butter, arrowroot and ground chia for the egg (allergies). The dough got pretty shiny and gooey… Maybe from the chia? Anyway, the first batch I made with heaping tablespoon size drops and they didn’t cook through well (but still tasted yummy) so the second batch I made into teaspoon size little cuties and they were perfect cookie consistency. Thank you so much for this recipe!
