I have a lot of gluten sensitivities in my family and loved that these were gluten free. I think next time I will try to make my own almond flour and maybe go with the honey over the maple syrup just to see!

Also – I had a mishap with my oven timer and they were slightly overcooked. They tasted fabulous right out of the oven but were a bit crispy for my preference. But that has nothing to do with the recipe and everything to do with my own mistake!!! Oops – lesson learned!
