  1. These look great. I've made them with almond flour before and taken them to parties and no one seems to notice they're "different". I bet adding the almond butter makes them softer. What a great idea.

  2. Aren't the chips legal if they are made with coco butter? I have been searching for an SCD cookie and this one looks so good! YUMMY!

  3. Hi Candice, my understanding is that ANY chocolate is illegal. I have been able to have it once a week or so without any problems, I do use dairy free chocolate. Thanks for the comment,

  4. I made these today! I've been craving a salty sweet combo so I did something weird. I sprinkled a touch of celtic sea salt on top right before baking. I may be the only one in the world who would - but I loved them. Thanks!


  5. I never would have thought of it but I am going to try some salt the next time I make these! Thanks Meredith
