    I think the recipe is good in general but I did two batches and the 2nd batch I changed a few things. I added another 1/2 cup of almond flour plus another 1/2 cup of chopped almonds to give me more crunch. I halved the sugar as 1st batch was too sweet for me. Instead of dried apricot, I used choc chips and mashed banana. The 2nd batch was a lot better. It's soft inside but crunchy outside. My husband couldn't stop eating them.

    I can eat gluten and I would make them again even if my daughter did not like them. Both kids love them.

    I only used 2/3 cup sugar and substituted dried apples because that is what was in my pantry.

     

    Just do not let them cool to much on the sheet or they will stick.

    Excellent cookies! they are chewy and so good, we don't like things too sweet so I reduced the sweetener to 1/3 cup Xylitol and 1/4 cup coconut palm sugar, and added 1/4 tsp salt. So, so good!
