"These cookies came out rather dry and the flavor of amaretto really didn't shine through. It's possible they might be better without the chocolate chips."

"I was excited to try this flavor combination. Mine turned out quite dry and very pale. I was afraid to bake them until they had a hint of color because they were so dry! Disappointing!"

"oat flour is simply rolled oats that are pulverized to flour in a blender or food processor. Talk about cheap!"

"Couldn't buy Oat flour in this one-horse town so used regular flour. I ADORE anything almond, but I was disappointed in the outcome. They didn't flatten out much when they baked & I did add both baking pwd. & baking soda."

"I baked these tonight and it was hard not to eat them all! I made one big substitution - I used almond flour because I didn't have oat flour. I'm sure they would be just as delicious with oat flour (and less expensive). :) I also didn't use the chocolate chips because the person I'm baking them for can't eat chocolate. If anything, I think cinnamon chips would be amazing in them!"
