One thing I have to note is these cookies aren't very sweet. It's the chocolate chips that gives it its sweetness. If you like sweet cookies, I'd recommend using 1/2 cup of brown rice syrup or maple syrup. Really, give these cookies a try. I feel these are way better for you than traditional cookies. If you're concerned about nut allergies, try using sunflower butter instead of nut better. But just a disclaimer, I've never tried this recipe with sunflower butter, I think it might work because of its high oil content much like nut butters. If you do, please let me know how they turn out.
