My mom brought this recipe into the family a few years ago and they became an instant hit! It’s a simple recipe with just a few ingredients. Thankfully, I was able to re-make it paleo style relatively easily. I played around with a few different versions. One came out really flat and crispy, one was nice and firm and cakey, and the final recipe is somewhat soft and chewy with a crispy chocolate crunch on top.
I debated between version two and three and ultimately went number three because they tasted great and didn’t require cassava flour like version two did. That cassava flour is a great ingredient and I’m slowly but surely learning how to use it, but right now it’s running $25/bag and that is just really high. I want to publish recipes that are within reach of everyone.
I hope you enjoy this one. These just made the rounds at my kids’ Christmas recital and they seemed to be universally devoured, even by the non-gluten-free in the crowd.
