Almond Flour Chocolate Cookie
Add 1/2 cup cocoa powder and an additional 1/8 cup of syrup to the above recipe to transform it into a chocolate cookie. The sugar load is a bit high for me, but I wanted to include this variation for those looking for a way to twist the recipe further into dessert territory.
Alternate Sweetener Substitution
I don’t tolerate many artificial sweeteners,but if you need to totally cut out all sugar you can adapt the recipe by substituting half of the butter/oil with grape seed oil and using 4 packets of any alternate sweetener like Sweet ‘n Low or Stevia instead of the syrup.
