I've tried almond flour and it really doesn't taste good enough to be worth the calories - it can have as many if not more than the calories of regular baked goods. And the texture is still wrong.

From reading your last couple posts, I get the feeling that you have already resigned yourself to take a baking sabbatical, and if that's what is best for you right now, it's all good.

However, I can't resist, and I will though leave you with my FAVOURITE COOKIE RECIPE OF ALL TIME, FOREVER and EVER. No regular flour and easily adapted to use sugar substitute (swerve), I've made both sugar and sugar-free many times and the fam can't tell the difference. #yum

Of course, I realize not everyone loves the taste of almonds/amaretto/marzipan as much as I do, so it may not crank your engine, but just thought I'd share, LOL #superyum

Good luck with everything! ❤️

Thanks! I might make these some time, but without the nuts on top (I like the flavor of almonds, but not whole almonds - it's a texture thing). They look a bit like pignoli, except with an almond instead of pine nuts (I would like pignoli except I don't like the texture of pine nuts either). Nuts do have a lot of calories, and I'm afraid I would eat too many. I really have to limit anything sweet and only eat it at night. I can't bake at night because I'm too tired to focus.

Those look delicious!! I love almonds. They may end up being my contribution to our annual cookie day.
