  4. Made these today to take to my women's group at church tonite. They were awesome! I made a dark chocolate sf buttercream frosting and added some unsweetened coconut on top if some. Left a few frostless-- they are moist enough you don't miss it! Having the leftovers for my birthday tomorrow! Thanks so much!

    1. I wouldn't since making it with only Almond flour would result in an entirely different product... but, if you do let us know how it turned out....
