    1. Please tell me where to find the pin option in your recipes. I have asked in several places with no response.

      If there isn’t an option, please consider adding it! That is the only way I can keep recipes.

    2. What can I use in place of almond flour? I’m allergic. I also don’t really care for too much of the coconut-y taste when you substitute that in. Is there a way to cut that taste a little?

      1. You can use sunflower seed flower. It is nut free and substitutes 1:1 with almond flour. You can omit the coconut flour if you want and just add another tablespoon of sunflower seed flower.

      2. Try Lupin Flour or Oat FIBER.
        Both much lower to almost No carbs.?
        Lupin Flour works very well in place of flour to ‘dust’ things before putting in eggs & then Lupin Flour again or Lupin Flour & Parmesan OR crushed Pork rinds for crunchy coating for things like for fried fish, chicken, veggies (?my fav is eggplant 1/4″ slices coated in Lupin Flour, then egg, then with Lupin w/Parmesan & crushed Oregano seasoning, then fried in E.V. Olive Oil, top with bit of Rao’s Marinara & 1 T. Grated Mozzarella melted in on top…Heavenly)

    3. Just made this! Awesome ?. I added 1 tbsp almond flour 1 tbsp lupin and 1 tbsp carbquick as I’m trying to finish them up and OMG I’m so satisfied lol it was like the real deal. I did add a pinch of baking soda and used swerve brown sugar.

    4. I made the recipe and used the oven method to cook. I was disappointed bc they ended up spreading out way to much. I even had them in the fridge for 15 minutes before baking

      1. The microwave power may have been too high. You can lower the power and then bake. Another suggestion is even if you cookie spread, take a butter knife while the cookie is still warm and push on the edges to reform the cookie shape. This works like a charm whenever my cookies spread.

    5. Delicious! I was having a terrible craving and made this using Lilys mint chocolate chips. Then I put a tablespoon of Rebel low carb mint chip ice cream on it ??

    6. If I split the dough between 2 smaller ramekins, what do you suggest I drop the microwave time to for each (cooking one at a time)??
      Thanks ? ? ??

    7. I tried the microwave version, what a runny mess. before I give up I will try baking in a muffin tin. the recipe seemed to have too much butter for the amount of flours.

      1. I’m sorry that happened. Nobody else has this problem so I think it could be your microwave wattage. Try using a lower power. Are you using butter or margarine? Is it softened or melted. You could also refrigerate the cookie for 10 minutes before baking.

    8. I gave the cookie another try. This time I upped the coconut flour to a little less than 1 tablespoon. Microwaved for 55 seconds and they turned out a lot better and tasted good too. Thanks for the inspiration.

      1. I did. I cooked it for six minutes. It was delicious. The only problem was it was too crumbly when hot to get it out of the griddle. I finally flipped it upside down onto a piece of parchment paper (awkward.) I think next time I will try putting a little piece of parchment paper for handles to lift it out. Will the paper burn? I don’t know. It’s just an idea. On the other hand if you like to eat your cookies hot with a spoon, as I sometimes do, you will love it without fussing with parchment paper.

    9. These were okay but super crumbly and didn’t stay together. I felt like they were missing an egg or something to help bind it all together (besides the butter).

      1. The will hold together as they cool. It sounds like you tried to pick them up before they cooled completely (as the directions stated)

    10. So good! I’ve been so hesitant to bake with erythritol again after ruining a batch of peanut butter cookies that had an overwhelming cooling effect we couldn’t get past. But a single cookie was the perfect test and I’m so happy to report my cookie turned out just perfect following the recipe to a tee (oven method). Definitely looking forward to making a full batch…and more baking with less worry about cooling effect. Thank you, I know you’ve worked hard on perfecting this recipe!!

    11. Omg I love this recipe! I’ve tried a few variations…. I substituted the flour with a keto butter biscuit mix (because it’s what I had) and it was fantastic. My favorite sugar is the swerve brown sugar and my favorite method was the airfryer. Definitely let it cool all the way, I put mine in the fridge for about 5 minutes to let it set, it was still warm but more solid. 10/10 on the texture and flavor.

    12. I love these cookies. However when I did the calculations, even without any chocolate chips it was 2.66 net carbs. (Two for the almond flour and 2/3 of a gram of carb for the coconut flour). I added three little squares of chopped Lily’s milk chocolate which came out to .66 g of carbs. The total carbs for one chocolate chip cookie was 3.33, according to my calculations.

      1. I’m glad you liked the recipe. It depends on what brands you use. I use Kirkland almond flour and it is 1 g net carb per 2 tablespoons. I also use choczero chocolate chips.

    13. Hi Annie,

      Thank you for all the recipes that you have brought to the YouTube community. I really love this easy cookie recipe. I tried it in an air fryer, which was delicious.

      Thank you! 🙃🙂
