    I’ll have to give these a try. I’m on a sugar free gluten free diet and have found some yummy things to make. Now my daughter is on a similar diet, but she’s also dairy/egg free which makes it harder, but I think she could have these.

    These sound great! I wonder if I can grind the chia seeds in my blendtec? I’ve always used them whole.

    @Helen, Yes, you can grind them in your blendtec or a spice/coffee grinder.

    Amy, I LOVED these! One of my favorites in Hallie’s book. A great book for the coming holiday baking season.

    This looks great!! Would I be able to replace the chia seeds with something else? Maybe an egg?

    @Saira, If you use an egg you’ll have to bake this. Unless you’re ok with raw egg. I wouldn’t do it, and if I did use a raw egg I certainly wouldn’t serve to children.

    @Amy,

    I feel a bit silly, I forgot these were no bake! But I wouldn’t have a problem baking it anyways, and even if I didn’t bake them I was one of those kids who always ate the raw cookie dough when my mom didn’t look, lol :)

    Hi, This sounds interesting, however I cannot use any almond products. What flour would I substitute?
    Thanks for your help.

    @Lea, Try another nut flour. :)

    I don’t have a grinder. Can whole chia seeds be used?

    [Reply]

    Amy Reply:

    @Aubrie, I wouldn’t do it because you’ll have whole chia seeds in your recipe.

    Do the chia seeds serve a binding or nutritional purpose? I try to avoid them as they cause me GI issues.

    Amy Reply:

    @Julie, You might try flaxseeds or xanthan or guar gum.

    I also want to know if the chia seeds can be replaced or omitted. Like Julie, my tummy doesn’t like them either.

    Amy Reply:

    @April, They serve as a binder. You might try flaxseeds if you can tolerate them. A less natural but still acceptable solution that could work would be xanthan or guar gum.

    These cookies sound yummy! I’ve been looking for a substitute binder for xanthan and guar gum. Just found the link below. “Gluten-Free-Girl” recommends using phyllium husk as some people can not tolerate the less natural options. Something to try…
