  • Either I've never noticed it, or it's new, but I love the "Share the Joy" lead on your sharing buttons. So cute! These look delicious :)

    Hello Sarah, These look like something my work crew would love; however, I work with a woman who has MS and is allergic to all protein powders. May I substitute additional coconut flour for the protein or what would you suggest? This past weekend, my kids and I celebrated Father's Day with my husband. We went to the park, had a picnic, and kicked the soccer ball around. My husband's favorite gift: spending time with his adult children whom we hardly see anymore and me (of course). Hahaha!

    Ok so I just made these and they rock. I used erythritol as a sugar substitute and omitted the raisins and walnuts. Then, baked them as donuts (made 10) for 13 minutes. 47 calories each! i'm in love <3
