Don’t let the word “vegan” scare you, especially in the context of dessert. These cookies are a healthy substitute for whenever you’re craving something sweet. They’re just like Samoa Girl Scout Cookies, except you don’t have to regret eating six in a row.
Try these next time you’re sweet tooth kicks in.
#SpoonTip: If you find that the oats aren’t sticking together when you’re mixing the ingredients, add more coconut oil. The coconut oil is what holds the cookies together so they won’t crumble. Don’t be afraid to keep adding, coconut oil is packed with health benefits.
