Tips And Tricks:

  • The cookie dough might be a bit sticky, so consider coating your palm with a little oil when flattening them. This also helps with the spoon when making the indentation.
  • Ensure the indentation is deep and wide enough as it’s where the caramel will go after baking.
  • Allow the cookies to cool completely before adding the caramel mixture.
  • You can opt for almond butter caramel, date caramel, or regular caramel, depending on your preference.

Frequently Asked Questions:

  • Can I use a different type of flour instead of almond flour? Oat flour is a suitable alternative, though the texture may vary slightly.
  • What other type of caramel can I use? Date caramel, which is made from soaked and blended dates, works well. Alternatively, you can use store-bought or homemade caramel.
  • Can I make these without an egg? While I haven’t tested it yet, you can try using a chia egg as a binding agent to make these cookies completely vegan.
