      I made these for myself and my husband as we began a 45 day Paleo challenge. He is usually not one to enjoy “paleo” desserts. I received a text this morning when he got home from work and tried one, commenting on how great they tasted! I will definitely be making these again!

      Cannot find chestnut flour locally. Where do you purchase yours?

      I made these with homemade chestnut flour and they turned out great! I put them in the freezer so I wouldn’t eat them all at once and they were really great partially frozen too! Also, the frosting is great in coffee if you have some leftover!

      Can I substitue honey for cocount sugar? Coconut sugar very expensive here in South Africa, so its not an ingredient I keep in my pantry.

      I don’t see the frosting recipe anywhere, what am i missing?? Also, this recipe does NOT work with almond flour. The flavor is there but it was a crumbly mess.
