      Hi Sabrina I don’t think so :/ but nothing better than trying something different 😉 If you try with a different ingredient let me know how it went 😀

    I will be trying it soon, but I may tweak it a little, adding tiger nut flour for added crunch… Not sure yet. Anyway, chocolate and sweet potato sound like a good pair!

        Hi! The cookies still came out soft in spite of the added flour. My (difficult) husband was looking for crunchiness, so he was disappointed. I didn’t mind. Interesting texture, I am thinking this mix would be good for a vegan cake.
        Obridaga pela receita, até a próxima! ?
