I added powdered almond to give them some weight. My version does not taste sweet (I left out the honey, coconut sugar and chocolate chunks), so one must readjust ones taste expectations. This is the cookie for when you have a CHOCOLATE CRAVING you just can’t ignore. The cocoa taste is crazy strong – I love it – but I only eat chocolate with 98% cocoa and I’ve been told thats an acquired taste, so maybe this one isn’t for everyone. (EDIT: definitely not for everyone. H hated them. I made the mistake of telling him they were cookies and forgetting to tell him they were sugar free. He is still busy telling me, as I type, that I am forbidden from bringing them to people’s houses or taking them out in public. So, I recommend these only if you’ve been on a sugar free diet for a while. Because to me they taste DELICIOUS).
