  • Cheryl Caplan says:

    Why does the recipe call for 2 heaping tablespoons of almond butter and then another tablespoon of almond butter as the next ingredient? Should I put in 3 TB of almond butter?

    • Hi Cheryl – what a great question – thanks so much for pointing that out! It’s just a typo… Just use 2 Tablespoons of almond butter! The truth is this recipe is very forgiving. You could use 1 egg for a thicker batter or 3 T almond butter for more almond flavor and a slightly heavier chewier batter! Let me know how this recipe works out for you.
