As I always do, I asked my readers to take part, maybe tell me what they think about my recipes and give me some tips, as well. What do they think of this one? Do they like it, did they make someone important to them happy with it? Did it help them save some time? Simply, what do our readers say about this recipe? Here it comes:

“I like that I can make them vegan, gluten free and (like the recipe suggests) dairy free. The consistency is good, not too thick or too thin.”

“Maybe because it’s week 2 of Paleo, but I’m having trouble with this cookie. The coconut flour seems to be the issue this time.”

“Tasty! The consistency is perfect and they don’t fall apart (like other ones I’ve tried).”

“I find the ground flax seeds don’t work as a binding agent so I substituted 1/3 cup of sunflower seeds. Also a great cookie for a paleo diet … light and crispy!”

“i think you make great recipes and also like the fb page. i got your email without signing up & was curious about your newest postings, so i added you as a contact & now reading the blog posts that come through to my email. Yummmm!”

“Oh how do I love thee? Let me count the ways!! I just made these today for work and they are divine! My coworkers gobbled them up so fast it was unbelievable! I will be making these again SOON!!”

“These cookies are really good, but what makes them so addictive is not just their taste but also how they crumble to pieces when you take a bite.”

And a little note before I will finally say goodbye to y’all: You’re 1 000, no 1 000 000, no 1 000 000 000 times more awesome and nice and excellent than every recipe here. Love you, love you all!
