    Has anyone out there tried this recipe? I’ve tried to make it TWICE with these ingredients and both times it did NOT come out well at all!!!! The first time I tried with agave syrup (to do sugar free), and all I got was a melted mess,but it tasted o.k., it just was a pile of soup basically.The second time I used regular sugar and it was just like a powder,it didn’t form a cookie texture at all. I’m wondering if I should use almond flour instead of almond meal,Is the list of ingredients correct? Can someone please give me some advice, I love the flavors ,but these are very expensive ingredients to keep throwing away! Thanks

    I’m not sure why this is not working for you. I would definitely use parchment paper instead of wax paper; parchment paper is safe in the oven, while wax paper may be melting. I used almond meal (essentially ground almonds) and real sugar. Agave would make it soupy since it’s a liquid. When you put it into the pan, it should be like wet sand. Hope that helps!
