Smart Tips

  • Quality Coconut: Opt for high-quality unsweetened shredded coconut. This ensures a pure coconut flavor without the added sugars.

  • Watch the Oven: Due to their minimal ingredient profile, these cookies can burn quickly. Keep an eye out and ensure they're removed once golden.

  • Flavor Boost: For an extra layer of flavor, consider adding a splash of vanilla extract or a sprinkle of sea salt to the cookie mixture.

  • Storing: These cookies store well in an airtight container for up to a week. They can also be frozen and enjoyed later.

  • Vegan Version: If opting for the vegan version with maple syrup and a flax egg, the cookies might be slightly softer but will be equally delicious.
