CAN YOU MAKE THIS RECIPE WITHOUT SPIRULINA?
Absolutely! If you can I would recommend using spirulina as it gives a nice festive green color, and you can’t even taste it! However, these Spirulina Chocolate Cookies recipe can be made without spirulina if you want something more simple. You can also use any other green powders (wheatgrass powder, chlorella powder, kale powder…) instead of spirulina.
