    Yes. Raw honey, agave syrup, coconut nectar or a sugar-free syrup will work well in this recipe.

  2. Can I replace sorghum flour with another flour?

    Because I created this recipe with sorghum flour in mind and have not tested it with any others, I do not recommend it. But, if you do try something else, I would love to hear about it!

    SUCCESS, but no pix!! I am pleasantly surprised, they are not dry, at all; probably could have cooked 1 more min. As i only went 13 min. to make sure i did not overbake.
    My caution was with the feedback of other amateur bakers..
    I tasted dough b4 i baked. My ‘old’ tastebuds need more umph. So i added 1/8 t maple extract; next time will double that amount.. i can’t leave well enough alone, so next time this southerner will add toasted chopped pecans. Will look at your other cookie recipes later..
    I’ve only made Irish soda bread with sorghum flour so I’d never really experienced the taste of sorghum. It’s a nutty flavor, I’ll have to get used to. I get mine at a Mediterranean food store and it’s grown/millled in England.
    Happy New Year and good baking in 2021.

    I’m sorry to say that this went so horribly wrong that I thought the recipe was some cruel fool’s errand. Are you sure about the amount of sorghum used? Is there supposed be another type of flour to go with it? My batter was so thin that it didn’t hold any real shape on the baking sheet. It looked nothing like your photos. In the oven, the golfball-sized rounds (if you can call them rounds) completely flattened and I was left with one giant puddle of burnt cookie. Perhaps it was something I did wrong, but I followed this recipe to the letter. Very disappointed.

          If you do not want to use the baking soda, it should be okay, they just might be a bit flatter than with. As for the maple syrup, I recommend replacing with another liquid sweetener of choice. Agave syrup and honey will work well, or any sugar-free honey/maple syrup replacement sweetener should work, too. If you simply omit the maple syrup, the cookies will be very dry, as that is major liquid ingredient for this recipe, so it does need to be replaced. I hope this helps! 🙂

    Hi Kristen
    These cookies were super easy to make and were delicious!
    I made with butter and found them to be moist and mine spread nicely so visually appealing.

    I added 1 teaspoon of cinnamon and cut maple syrup down to 2/3 cup. Next time I make I would add vanilla.

    Great to have a great gluten free cookie that is straightforward with simple ingredients and none of those extra ingredients like xanthum gum.

    Quite yummy. As you mentioned very important to let them cool so they don’t break apart. Thanks for sharing this cookie with us.

    Definitely would make again from start to finish with clean up done under 1 hour!

        I’m so happy I found this recipe! I’ll be substituting the flax for ground chia or xanthum gum, I’m extremely sensitive to flax, and hopefully they will still come out amazing !

    The flavor was fine and what I expected for taste except that they were horribly dry. I followed the recipe exactly (used coconut oil). I’m not vegan so maybe they would be less dry with an egg?

      Sorry to hear that! They shouldn’t be dry. I’m curious to know what brand of sorghum flour you used? An egg can be used in this recipe, but I find the outcome to be very similar to that with flaxseeds.

        I was using Deep (an Indian brand). Good news is my son LOVED them and asked me to make a second batch! So I did, and this time I melted the coconut oil first and still used flax instead of egg. They still taste a little dry to me but if my picky son likes them then that’s a win!

      I going to be trying this recipe next week. I use a spoonful of unsweetened applesauce in my recipes. It’s is way better than the egg. One spoonful per egg to replace.

      Did you make it with egg? I have bags of sorghum flour and am trying to get rid of them. Most recipes call for sorghum and another GF flour and I do not want to buy anymore varieties of GF flours. So, this recipe isvtempting, but I am worried it will be a dry crumbly biscuit texture because of the nature of sorghum. Did these come out decent?

      Hi Amy – you can use 2 tablespoons of chia seeds or 1 teaspoon of psyllium husk fiber in its place. They would still be tasty if you omitted, but they would not hold together quite as well.

All recipes i see include Xanthium gum and a mix of other flours: cornstarch, tapioca flour with sorghum. I plan to use a flour from India i get locally. (The mixed flour makes good irish soda bread). Pls help mecgsin more knowledge as i work with sorghum. Thanks

          Hi Sharon – There are lots of recipes out there for cookies using blends of gluten-free flours but this is recipe I specifically tested with sorghum flour alone, as I am quite fond of the flavor and texture that sorghum produces and wanted to make a sorghum flour-only cookie. If you follow this recipe without modifications, it should not produce a dry cookie at all. 🙂 But I haven’t tested it with a blend so I cannot say for certain how well that would turn out. If you try it with a blend I would love to hear how it turns out! Otherwise, I might recommend one of my other recipes that use a blend, such as this one: https://moonandspoonandyum.com/chai-spiced-chocolate-chip-cookies-gluten-free/ Good luck, and I hope this helps! 🙂
