Do you have an egg free version of these?

Try this as an egg substitute:

1. Substitue 2 tablespoons liquid + 2 tablespoons flour + ½ tablespoon shortening + ½ teaspoon baking powder for each egg or 2. Substitute 1/2 of a mashed ripe banana plus 1/4 teaspoon baking powder for each egg.

Is there any way to make this recipe without the use of sugar, just using maple syrup? Less sweet would be OK.

These look yummy! I'm new to GF baking, how would you decide which GF flour mix to use? Thanks!

Are u sure it's 2.5 CUPS coconut flour? That stuff absorbs a lot of liquid...2.5 tbsp makes more sense

Waht is the amount of butter used in this recipe? I can't see it listed in the ingredients.

Has anyone made these without the tremendous amount of sugar and figured out if she meant 2.5 tbs of coconut flour versus 2.5 cups. I agree 2.5 cups would make an incredibly dry cookie. They look awesome but I don't want to waste ingredients.

I had to throw these cookies in the garbage because they were grainy and broke apart. It would have been embarrassing to serve them. What a waste of time, money and effort.
