  1. These look so good, but I don't have access to vegan chocolate chips. Could I use Hershey syrup, cacao or cocoa powder instead, and how much? Thanks.
    1. Thanks Marcy! I bet you could make them with syrup and cocoa powder too. Just add a little at a time until you get the consistency you like. It doesn't have to be exact. :)
  2. I'm going to make them with 1/2 cup baking cocoa in place of chocolate chips, and increase the maple syrup (or honey) to 1/3 cup, increase coconut oil to 1/4 cup, and adding a tsp of vanilla and 1/8 tsp sea salt
  3. Oh my God, Melissa, they are amazing! These are not cookies, this is pure chocolate peanut butter bliss....I will need to keep them in a locked box in the fridge so I don't eat it all at once! By the way, I used honey instead of maple syrup and it worked out great. Can I post this on my FB wall? You are a genius, and your recipes rock!
    1. Aw, thanks Valeria! You are more than welcome to share the recipe link on your Facebook wall, but please do not copy and paste the recipe. Thanks!!
      1. Of course I would share it. Thanks! People have to try this. And so easy to make! I used dark cooking chocolate, and OMG!
  4. My kids and I made these last night. They tasted fantastic but ours were pretty dry and crumbly. Any idea why? We didn't change anything from your recipe. We LOVE everything you post, BTW!
    1. Thanks Robin!! Sorry yours turned out crumbly. Maybe it depends on the type of peanut butter you used? If you make them again, you can add a little extra oil or maple syrup to help. :)
  5. Followed the recipe to the letter and ended up with 20 of the best dang cookies I've had in a while. It was easy to eat a lot of these. YUM YUM YUM.
    1. Sorry that happened. :( Maybe the heat was too high when you mixed everything together? If the mixture looks a little thick, you can always add a little extra coconut oil.
      1. That happened to me last time. I added some almond milk as I didn't think of adding more coconut oil at the time, and it also worked.
  6. Hi Melissa, Just thought I'd let you know that I substituted oats for nuts to make this work for Jewish Passover, and it turned out great as well. A bit like nut clusters, but so so good! Really yummy! So versatile.
