    Batter is a little runny. Needed to cook these about 16 min to get firm enough. Could add a little more almond flour. But still delicious – even without cooking

    These came out great! I substituted a little ground flax and ground hemp for some of the almond flour to make them extra healthy!! Mine were a bit dry but still very delicious.

      what brand of almond flour did you use? Also was it blanched?

    These turned out great – instead of cacao nibs, I used 1/8 cup raw cacao powder which made them chocolately and delicious!! Thank you for this recipe :)

    Sounds delicious, I will try to make this today. I live in Sweden and we use degrees Celsius and deciliters, so I have to convert everything first… :(

      It’s worth making the conversions :) Please let me know how they turn out.

    Made these yesterday and they are DELICIOUS! I can’t have honey so I used rice malt syrup instead and I also added 1/8 tsp Stevia powder. Scrumptious! Thanks heaps for the great recipe!

    Delicious and so quick in thermomix. Used raw dried alive almonds instead of flour and mapple syrup. Needed just another couple of minutes at lower heat. Woukd be great raw topping on apple pie etc. With gratitude.

    “Batter” turned out crumbly like granola. Tasted great though! Second batch I just flattened a little more & they stayed together a little better. Used almond meal? Was that right??
