    These cookies came out rather dry and the flavor of amaretto really didn't shine through. It's possible they might be better without the chocolate chips.

    I was excited to try this flavor combination. Mine turned out quite dry and very pale. I was afraid to bake them until they had a hint of color because they were so dry! Disappointing!

    oat flour is simply rolled oats that are pulverized to flour in a blender or food processor. Talk about cheap!

    Couldn't buy Oat flour in this one-horse town so used regular flour. I ADORE anything almond, but I was disappointed in the outcome. They didn't flatten out much when they baked & I did add both baking pwd. & baking soda.

    I baked these tonight and it was hard not to eat them all! I made one big substitution - I used almond flour because I didn't have oat flour. I'm sure they would be just as delicious with oat flour (and less expensive). :) I also didn't use the chocolate chips because the person I'm baking them for can't eat chocolate. If anything, I think cinnamon chips would be amazing in them!
