Have you tried using aqua faba in these? I'm wondering if it would help bind them together better than just the coconut milk alone.

Not yet! The maple syrup actually helps bind these together more than the coconut milk, but aqua faba might work too. I'd be interested if you try it!

I replaced 2 T of the coconut milk with aqua faba. I didn't have amaranth flour, so replaced it by weight with millet flour. Seems to have worked well -- they have no inclination to crumble.

That's great to know! Thanks. The amaranth I replace with millet all the time, since I seldom have amaranth on hand anymore. I should probably add that as a note somewhere, lol.

I'm not vegan and gluten isn't a problem for me so I'm always a little skeptical that recipes in those categories could actually be *good.* I've been schooled! These are terrific.

How did I miss these? Thanks for mentioning them on Hotline -- you never know where your pearls are cast...

Thanks, susan g! I've found they're so versatile they make most anyone in a crowd happy, no matter their dietary restrictions.

Yes! I've used coconut flour in place of the amaranth. They didn't hold together quite as well. I think I cut the amount down slightly to compensate for coconut flour's tendency to absorb liquid. Maybe down by 1 Tbls?

Thanks, everyone! I'm glad they're such a hit. It's definitely my most-requested cookie at this point.

I am also a lover of these cookies! They are dangerously easy to keep eating. Thanks for posting this, I will be making them for my vegan friend.
