    Oh…my…yum ;-) How else can you describe hazelnuts and chocolate?! These cute temptations are simply irresistible. And now I am totally convinced to try that date paste of yours. I think I will go soak the dates straight away. Have a wonderful weekend!

    Wow… I checked out Texanerin’s site, and a few other bloggers who were inspired by her cookies. Your cookies definitely get an A++ for presentation and texture! Awesome. I’m making them this weekend!! I’ll let you know how they work out! ;) K

    This totally rocks. I love hazelnuts. And the combo of hazelnut and chocolate makes me think of nutella. Aka crack. Aka amazingness.

    Hahaha. Foods of the Gods.

    And what?! You added banana, eggs and protein powder? That’s awesome that it worked out. And you just made them more healthy! I knew you’d manage getting rid of the honey. :) They look SO good. And that melty and gooey chocolate. Oh goodness. And hazelnut butter?! Oh boy. That sounds even better than peanut butter!

    I’m so happy that you liked the cookies! Thank you for the funny comments on the recipe and even going back to reply to my replies (hitting more! more! more! is really annoying but I can’t fix the comments thing. Boo!) I keep looking at your comments on there and giggling. :D And thanks for all the links!

    Definitely gotta pin these. :)

    so I went out and bought all the ingredients for these, so it was an expensive endeavor, and followed the recipe to a T, baked till just golden, looked just like your picture! I was so excited! They were not good, a strange dryish consistency, not a good mouth feel at all. I am a seasoned baker, as well, no amateur. My 17 year old hungry son didn’t even finish the one I gave him. He was sweet about it. I think if you have wicked dietary restrictions (I made them as my daughter is GF) then maybe these would be an adequate substitute, but some of the other healthy cookies are much tastier, sorry!
