  1. Just made these yesterday. Everyone liked them. Only a couple left. Will be making more. Thanks for an easy recipe.

  2. Hi! I was looking for a recipe that didn’t have sugar or dairy. Unfortunately the mini-chocolate chips have both. Only 2 TBSP but… I suggest using chocolate nibs. I think you can get them at Whole Foods.

  3. I am sad to say these were my first disappointment. Maybe because you have an expensive blender? I can do most things with mine but these did not form a ball of dough and were very crumbly. I also could not fit the cookie sheet in my freezer but I doubt it would have helped 🙁

  4. These look amazing! Do I need to use 10 dates? It seems it would be really high in sugar.

  5. Hi Lexi, What would you suggest as a replacement for the coconut flakes if anything? I’m so not a fan (weird textural thing for me).

    Thanks!
    Beth
