Can I use plain flour instead of cake flour? Or would I use self raising flour?
Hi Emma, you can use plain flour as well. I haven't used self-raising flour but it should work as well! I hope it helps!
Would applesauce work as a good substitute for the oil in this recipe, without losing the crunch?
Hi Gill, replacing oil with applesauce will make the texture more puffy than crunchy. I recommend replacing only half the amount first, and see how it goes!I hope it helps!
Many thanks, Juri, I'll try your suggestion.
Really delicious! Not too sweet and very crunchy.
I used 1/2c all purpose flour and 1/4c cacao powder.
Dough was a bit crumbly, so put in the fridge for ~30mins to firm up.
When rolling the dough it was a bit oily, possibly due to the almond flour? I was worried that it wouldn't bake right or taste too oily, but was very pleasantly surprised!
The cookie is just the perfect amount of sweet and even a little savory. Will definitely be baking these again and trying soon with a cup of coffee or tea 🙂
Thank Didi! I'm so happy to hear your cookies turn out good! Now I crave for these cookies:)
