Where do you find the dark mini chcoclate chips! I can never find them!

Thanks for sharing! Does it keep long?
Yes. For a good 5-7 days. Just keep them in an airtight container
This looks so good! What a great healthy treat to have on hand!
Thanks so much
Allergic to almonds… any substitutions?
Can you use blended oats or coconut flour?
Wendy Young says
Do you know how many grams or cups the protein powder uses?
Hi. The one scoop is pretty close to 1/4 cup. I will take a look to see what the grams is
Samantha V says
Is it possible to cook it without the honey or maple syrup?
Hi. I am not sure if it will work. It will need something sticky to bind it all together
These were delicious!!! I added 1 scoop of collagen peptides to give them 6g more protein, I substituted chocolate whey with vanillla, I used all natural peanut butter, and substituted water with Almond milk. I did have to add about 1/4tsp extra of almond milk. I added chocolate chips right into dough mix (I only had the regular size chips so the mixed better in the dough lol)
Thank you so much for sharing!!
Awesome. Thanks for the feedback

Johananha Graham says
Can you substitute the almond flour for a different flour other than coconut? i have reactions to both flours??
Hi Johananha. You can use oat flour. Or make your own oat flour by blending some rolled oats until they are fine and use that instead.
Hi! Is there any substitute for protein powder? 🙂 thank you!
Hi you can use more almond flour instead of protein powder
I did add more protein but was still wet. Thank you
That’s odd. I am not sure but usually, if it is a bit loose or watery you add more almond flour or protein and it should work.
Sabrina Arciuolo says
Can I sub the honey for pure maple syrup?
Hi Sabrina. Yes you sure can
Sabrina Arciuolo says
Thanks, what’s the best storage method and how long do the leftovers last?
Just place them in an airtight container and store in the fridge. They should be good for 7-10 days
My dough came out really wet and I couldn’t roll them properly. I followed the recipe. What should I do?
I’ve made this many times and it works for me. I am sorry! you can add either more almond flour or more protein

I love baking with my kiddos, this is our next project together. Finally a treat I don’t have to feel guilty about, thanks Rena.
Thank you so much. I hope you like it
Hi! Can you use regular flour in this recipe?
Hi Kara. It won’t work or taste right with regular flour.
I want to know if I can substitute almond flour and almond milk beacuse I can’t use it due to thyroid problems.
How about coconut? are you ok with that? you can use regular milk if you like.
