  2. I love that you used all nut flours instead of regular flour. It helps bring out the flavor in the walnuts. These look great! What do you think about using Stevia extract instead of xylitol? these looks so delicious and fluffy.

    I recently made a southern cooking and baking blog.

    1. Thanks so much! I think baking stevia is a good substitute for xylitol. Or coconut sugar works also :)
