I recreated this recipe from one of my older recipes, by adding ingredients that would not only enhance the flavor but add to the Low Carb Life Style that I am trying to adhere too. Please note that because coconut flour requires a lot more moisture than regular flour, these cookies tend to be a bit drier than a regular cookie. The flavor is awesome and you are only eating 58 calories per cookie. My husband, neighbor & I love these little gems, dessert without guilt. The NET CARB IS ONLY 1 PER COOKIE.

Black walnuts have a bit more nutrition than reg walnuts, but use what you have on hand.
