    I tried this recipe out this evening, and the flavor wasn’t bad! I didn’t have any cream on hand, so I substituted that with half and half. I also added a shot of vanilla extract. Give it a try!

    Thanks for posting this!

      Glad you enjoyed. The almond flour is the better of the two. Vanilla – good idea.

    Tried this tonight using Almond meal and substituted Splenda for Natvia (23% stevia, 77% Erythritol). I used crunchy peanut butter so I didn’t really feel the need to add the chopped peanuts at the end.

    I also baked them for about 20 mins in a fan forced over at 160 degree C (time is approximate). I might try and put them on the pizza stone next time as the bottom was less cookie like than I would’ve liked. I would also suggest making smaller ones rather than making a big one like me (cooked more evenly when small)

    They were very good. Will definitely do it again (maybe with slightly less Natvia).

    Thanks for the recipe!

      Thanks for sharing your experience – especially the pictures.

      I agree – the Almond Flour is the better way to go – but either work well.

      Let them cool on a wire rack. That dries out the bottoms.

      I put the extras in a plastic covered container in the freezer. They freeze well and they are super eaten partially frozen.

    HI TNT Man!

    I am up for a new batch of these and was wondering if I could use coconut flour?

    I also just re-read your comment, and I agree, they were bloody awesome frozen. Always hit the spot with a cup of coffee.

    Thanks again!

      I never tried it with coconut flower – go for it and let us know how it turned out.

    OK, so I ventured quite a way from the recipe above but it’s close enough to comment here.

    I was feeling a little adventurous so I added some unsweetened choc-chips, some unsweetened cocoa and used half almond meal and half cocnut flour instead of the flax.

    I also reduced the amount of sugar substitute to 1/4 cup as they were a little too sweet for me the first time. I baked them for 15-20 mins in a 160C oven.

    It worked out to be 20 cookies (smallish) and each have ~1g net carbs.

    The cocnut flour made a huge difference to the feel of the batter, it actually felt like normal cookie dough.

    Nutritional info and pics below can be see here: http://imgur.com/a/AdOL3#0

    The nutritional information isn’t 100% correct as it doesn’t include the melted chocolate and choc-chips. It shouldn’t alter it too much.

    All up, happy with how they turned out, I will take TNT Man’s recommendation again and freeze them for 20 days of sweets.

      Only down side is that this batch is so nice that the kids are having a go. Last batch was inedible in comparison 😀

        If your kids like them – I’ve got to try your version. Thanks for sharing.
