Recipe Tips:
  • If you find your cookie mixture is a little crumbly you can add a touch more maple syrup to help bind.
  • This recipe is subtly sweetened however if you have a sweet tooth, you can substitute some of the coconut oil for more maple syrup (reduce 1 Tbsp coconut oil and add 1 Tbsp maple syrup).
  • TO MAKE CHOC CHIP COOKIES - Add chopped refined sugar free and dairy free chocolate to your cookie dough :)
