  3. These were SOOO good. Finally a yummy guilt free cookie! I feel like skies have opened up. I just had whole raw almonds so when ground in the food processor made almond meal instead of flour. It made the cookies taste more like oatmeal cookies than snicker doodles but still awesome. Make sure and bake them long enough. My first batch came out much more gooey than my second batch.

    • I’m not sure you could do this recipe for only two cookies. You can make the whole batch, bake a couple of cookies and freeze the remaining dough. Then you can defrost dough whenever you want to make just a couple of cookies. 🙂


    • I like to make my own “break and bake” cookies. Just put the whole batch of dough into a gallon freezer bag. Lay the bag flat on the counter and press the dough out evenly into the bag. if you leave about an inch of space at the zipper. you can start at the bottom of the bag and score the cookie portions with the back side of a kitchen knife. if the recipe says the yield is 24, then make 24 squares in the dough. Zip it up tight and freeze! When you want a cookie, just break one square out of the bag!


  4. I made these last night and they were just what I was looking for!!! I used Ideal No Calorie Sweetener and only added half a cup of unsweetened coconut flakes (zero net carbs) to the recipe. I got 17 cookies using my tablespoon measuring spoon to drop and smooth out the dough. As someone stated, the cookies were soft after baking and cooling and even today after being in the refrigerator. But this worked for me!! Surely, the coconut flakes helped hold them together. They were NOT crumbling apart (my son dipped his in milk like Oreos) but were soft bake cookies. I will DEFINITELY make these again. Thanks for sharing!!


    • Sorry they didn’t come out for you. I have not had them mushy before but they are a soft cookie. I’m guessing that if you keep them out or in the refrigerator (not covered) then they will harden up for you. Since ovens and altitudes vary, you might just need to cook yours a little bit longer. Hope they turn out better for you next time!


    • Glad you posted that, I wasn’t sure if I should use 1/2 cup or a cup of truvia. Glad I went with 1/2 cup after seeing your comment. I even forgot the topping and I think they are good without the topping.
