    Where can I get this “Swerve” at?

    Hi there, I was wondering if you can taste the coconut flour.


  3. Karen at

    You can get Swerve from many online shops//Amazon, netrition, etc.

    If you want to convert to another sweetener:
    1 cup erythritol and 1 tsp stevia = 1 cup ZSweet OR Swerve
    1 cup erythritol and 1 tsp stevia = 1 cup Truvia
    1 cup erythritol and 1 tsp stevia = 1 cup
    1 cup erythritol and 1 tsp stevia = 1 cup Just Like Sugar
    1 cup erythritol and 1 tsp stevia = 1 cup Organic Zero and 1 tsp stevia

  4. Those cookies look delicious! And I love how simple they are, well done Brenda!

    Where do you get the Swerve?

    You could also use xylitol (find the one made from birch not the Now Foods corn based ) with a tad of stevia.

    Brown sugar substitute you use they will not deliver to the USA.. is there another place or type of brown sugar substitute that I can use .. snickerdoodles are my sons favorite cookie and I would love to try to make him some for a special Christmas surprise .. he has been diagnosed as pre diabetic and it has been hard to avoid the sweets for him ..

    You can also get swerve at Publix gro store, or at least you can where I live. Also, Vitacost has it on sale at this time. See their web site.

    Coconut sugar is a brown sugar that is good to use.
    I grind mine up so it isn’t so coarse.

    I didn’t have good luck with these. The dough was crumbly and wouldn’t hold together. Followed the recipe with exact ingredients and measurements. Any idea why that would happen?

    I have a coconut allergy. Will other GF flours work as well as coconut flour?

    I was a little disapointed withe the filling. I did use stevia instead of Swerve…. So I’m not quite sure what happened. Cookies are GREAT!!

    What is the best sweetener to use if you find Swerve has too much cooling sensation?

  14. Angela at

    I tried these cookies and they fell apart… Do you know why?

    To those that ended up with cookies that are too crumbly, I have a fix for that problem. When you make low carb cookies from a recipe like this, after all ingredients are mixed, take the dough in your hands and massage it like play dough for about 5 to 10 seconds. Then return it to the bowl and scoop out the dough onto your baking sheet. I’ve done this with other similar recipes and find that the cookies are slightly denser and hold together better.

    The cheapest I have found Swerve at is Thrive Market. It is a great online store (no affiliation) for unusual healthy ingredients.
