    I have never heard of coconut sugar where would you get it.

    Hallie @ Daily Bites Reply:

    @Kathy, You can get coconut sugar at most natural food stores (I get mine at Whole Foods). Amy has a great informative post about it here: http://simplysugarandglutenfree.com/coconut-palm-sugar/

    @Kathy, You can get it from iHerb.com. If you use coupon code SIR086, you’ll get a $5 discount on your first order. I love using coconut sugar in my cookies…it gives them a nice caramelized outside while still being soft in the middle.

    sounds yummy! Can you substitute for the coconut sugar? I figure you can, but thought I would throw it out there….

    Do you think I could substitute quinoa flakes for the oatmeal? Even gluten-free oatmeal doesn’t agree with me, but I really want to make these!!!

    [Reply]

    Hallie @ Daily Bites Reply:

    @Loflin, I think you could. I’ve made a cookie similar to these before using quinoa flakes and had good results. If you do try it, report back here with your verdict! :)

    [Reply]

    Loflin Reply:

    Hallie, I made these with quinoa flakes earlier this week, and I (yes, me alone!) have eaten them all, so they definitely passed my taste test. I did add a few chocolate chunks…chocolate makes everything better, especially almond butter! Thanks for the recipe.

    @Loflin, I substituted some ground quinoa for the oatmeal (didn’t have flakes; I just ground some in the coffee grinder) and it worked great. The four of us polished off the whole 2 dozen in short order.

    these really look yummie, but thats alot of sugar along with the agave :(

    [Reply]

    Amy Reply:

    @Nancy Bennett, I disagree. For 2 dozen cookies that’s a very small amount. Most cookie recipes call for 1 1/2 – 2 cups of white sugar. Now that’s a lot of sugar!

    Yum! Just pulled these out of the oven and they’re great! Here are my substitutions (I find it impossible to follow any recipe to the letter :)
    *for the almond butter I used 1/2 c almond butter and 1/2 c raw cashew butter
    *for the agave I used 2T raw honey and 2T Grade B Maple syrup
    and I added 1/4 c unsweetened shredded coconut

    Thank you for sharing your substitutions. I was wondering what I could substitute for the agave. I just have to pick up the coconut sugar – anxious to give that a try – and we’ll be making these this weekend.

    [Reply]

    Amy Reply:

    @Jennifer, Any liquid sweetener – honey, molasses, brown rice syrup, yacon syrup, liquid coconut sugar. Just know that your changes will impact the flavor of the cookies.

    LOL, that’s what I’m hoping. We’re just not fans of agave. Thanks for the additional info.

    Can I double this recipe without adjusting ratios? 2 dozen just doesn’t seem like enough, would be better to make 4 dozen then I can freeze some for later, if they last that long.

    @Alfa Katzz, You’d have to try it. My experience is that doubling usually works, especially for a cookie recipe.

    @Vivian-Grace, Try SunButter. Sometimes it changes color when you bake it – almost a greenish color. The cookies will still be delicious.

    These cookies are so delicious–I was a bit weary, as I have tried some other recipes (not from Amy) that were sugar free. Coconut Sugar can be found at healthfood stores, although I order online at amazon–just easier for me.

    My kids LOVE these cookies–I didn’t have enough almond butter, so I used some natural (no sugar) peanut butter…and I used craisins…This is a KEEPER!

    Vivian, I’m SO glad it helped!! I love LOVE SunButter. I was devastated when i became allergic to nuts, n OB was one of the hardest things to give up. So many “PB substitutes” were lackluster at best…but my hubby(who’s non-allergic) n I actually PREFER SB!! Also, if any of you all are missing Nutella, I.M Healthy chocolate soynut butter is preeetty amazing! Prefect for those delights nut-freers can no longer enjoy, like choco/banana crepes, OR grilled choco/SB/banana sammies!! Ok, i must go now…my bellys talking to me!:-) Glad I could help!! @Vivian-Grace,

    Yummy cookies — I added some coconut nectar for a bit more sweet and chewy batch! First no-refined cookies that actually had a cookie consistency! Thank you!

    Amy Reply:

    @Lish, Thanks for coming back to share, Lish! Thrilled that you like the cookies.

    Yes – coconut palm sugar gives cookies a great consistency. I use it in all my cookies in my book and give them to ‘regular eaters’ all the time – they never suspect that they’re gluten-free and refined sugar-free.

    Chewy…yummy….wow these are so good. I substituted honey for the agave nectar. I have been baking sugar and gluten free for about a year. Each time disappointed by the less than chewy and dry texture of most baked goods. I have been reading recipes on your site for a month and am so glad I finally tried one. I had palm sugar on hand but had not tried it yet. I think it is the secret to the texture and flavor in a cookie that I have been missing. I look forward to trying many more of your well thought out recipes. Thank you, Amy.

I used 1/4 cup each almond and almond/brazil/cashew butter, 1/2 cup peanut butter, quinoa flakes instead of oats, and 1/4 cup vegan choc. chips instead of raisins; works a treat and hopefully they sit well with my temperamental digestive system. 8D

    I made the cookies using natural crunchy peanut butter. I added the leftovers from when I juiced earlier that morning. I also added ground flaxseed. Once, I even substituted chia seed gel For the egg. The cookies were so chewy and delicious!! No one believed that there was no flour whatsoever in the cookies! They were even more amazed at the ingredients that were used. LOL!
    My husband just took some cookies to work today so his co-worker could try them. Thanks for the recipe!!

    Hi. I made these today and after perusing many of your recipes, decided to make them with xylitol and stevia. I replaced the agave with the xylitol and the palm sugar with stevia. I am on an anti-sugar/sweetener diet right now but love that I can use xylitol since it helps with candida. The dough is super yummy! Now just waiting impatiently for them to come out of the oven. Thanks! I was really wanting a little cheat – the cheat being the oats. :) Do you have many recipes in your cookbook that are grain free (or close) and use xylitol and stevia?
