This is a recipe out of a vegan cookbook called Eat, Drink and Be Vegan. Well, the author of the book just recently posted the recipe on line!
These cookies are really great. They definitely have a “healthy” taste but in a good way. I originally tried them for my four year old as a treat but honestly, he and my husband sometimes have them for breakfast. They are that good and the ingredients are all wholesome! My husband actually acts like a superhero when he eats them and pretends he has super powers :).
I actually didn’t have spelt flour, chocolate chips or maple syrup so I used whole wheat flour, double the amount of coconut and raw honey (which wasn’t raw after I cooked it, but it tastes much better than regular-and I realize also made these cookies non-vegan). The spelt flour may make them a bit more tender but regardless, they will turn out great.
I just wanted to share since so many guests ask about healthier dessert recipes. I really think you could take these to a work social, potluck or family party and they would get eaten right up. And the best part? You would have a healthy option!
