Delicious! This cookie definitely satisfied my sweet tooth. I replaced the peanut butter with an almond nut butter and the butterscotch flavoring with almond extract. They were soft and the texture with the coconut was great! I will definitely be making these again.
These are good, although I didn't think they had much "peanut" taste. Next time I will try using crunchy peanut butter, and maybe adding a small amount of peanut butter chips to the mix. I didn't have any butterscotch flavoring, so like another reviewer I added maple instead. I was not that impressed with the cookies when they first came out of the oven, but the texture & flavor was better the next day after they had set overnight in a zip-top bag. Will definitely make these again - thanks for posting! -M =)
This recipe was great! I did use 2 and a half teaspoons of "stevia plus", because I don't have PURE stevia powder. Next time I think I will use 3 tsp, because it could use a tad more sweetness. I also used maple flavoring in place of the butterscotch flavoring. I kneaded it with my hands to get all the coconut in.
These are excellent. I forgot to do the fork imprint so they turned out more like macaroons (plus the fact that I added a few semi-sweet chocolate chips to the mix - very tasty). Sometimes things sweetened with Stevia don't quite cut it, but these definitely work. I made some for my dad's b-day (he has borderline diabetes) and he loved them. Unfortunately I also gave one to his friend who is allergic to peanuts and he swelled up like a balloon. It was scary and I felt just terrible! Despite this cookie misadventure, I will definitely make these again. Thanks!
In spite of the fact that we are accustomed to the results of whole wheat flour, and are constantly seeking ways to avoid sugar as well as sugar substitutes -- these cookies were odd. Perhaps the fact that I didn't have any butterscotch flavoring made a bigger difference than I thought it would. Also, living in Thailand, our coconut is different-- not at all sweet like Angel Flake in the States. If I try this recipe again, I will replace some of the whole wheat flour with oats to see if that improves the texture, and will find some kind of flavoring to add. I'm glad that the other ratings were high, even though we were a little disappointed with our first attempt at using Stevia.
This recipe is GREAT! I will definitely make it again, too. My husband and I really enjoyed it!'Thank you!!
