  1. Wow, these are even better than I expected. Such a perfectly chewy bite! I omitted the stevia and subbed 1/2 cup tapioca starch for the 1/4 cup cornstarch, added the zest of one lemon and a handful of lightly toasted slivered almonds. Then I drizzled half of the batch with dairy-free 70% dark chocolate. YUM! (Without the stevia they are not very sweet but I like that–for more sweetness, if you don\’t like stevia (like me), you could likely just add more sugar.
