This recipe is super easy to make and uses only a couple of ingredients, making it easy to get the kids involved, especially since you don’t have to wait for them to bake! These cookies are also gluten-free, egg-free, dairy-free, and vegan, AKA, the perfect treat to share with everyone. While traditional sweet treats are higher in sugars, butter, etc, these are only made with 8 ingredients! Substitutions include swapping maple syrup for honey, peanut butter or any nut butter or sun butter to be peanut-free. Even removing the shredded coconut and adding a ¼ cup of oats and subbing the coconut oil for ghee or butter will make them nut-free as well! The use of maple syrup instead of sugar makes the cookies low in refined sugars and the use of peanut butter adds a little protein and a healthy source of fats. Overall these are a great substitution to some of the store-bought snacks and can be a fun experience to make at home.
