This is such a divine tasting cookie that is both vegan and gluten free
at the same time. I have been baking with nut flours for such a long time
even before I realized that I was baking gf.
The richness of this textured hazelnut meal, almond milk batter infused with
orange zest is so good. I love everything about this cookie from the taste and
This decadent vegan and gluten free cookie is tantamount to
a granola bar. What a good idea to try to make bars of this next time.
It is definitely not too sweet or crunchy or soft BUT just right.
