    Almond flour

    Almond Flour is almost the same as ground almonds, but it has a finer texture. Try purchasing blanched almond flour online if you're not able to find it in health shops. To make your own, grind blanched almonds yourself using a clean spice grinder. Using the food processor results into an oily almond paste, not a powdery result like flour. Since almond flour is not readily accessible in regular supermarkets, try grinding them using the spice grinder which produces a comparable almond flour product. Read more about almond flour here.

    I modified this a bit. Agave nectar gets bad reviews so I found 100% fruit sugar syrup instead. I changed the almond flour for a blend of oat flour, linseed and dried banana chips which I blended together to a flour. This makes them nut free too and I can give them to my 7 month old babies. Your ratios were really good but I might use less oil in my next batch. This made 40 for me!  -  05 Oct 2014

    How can this recipe be dairy free when it has dark chocolate in it??? Probably a good recipe apart from that fact...  -  29 Nov 2010  (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)
