Even though it says to let them mixture sit for an hour, I ended up leaving mine in about 2 hours as I was doing other things. This recipe isn't sweet unless you use sweetened coconut flakes. Personally... Read more →

Again, many edible (and I will say delicious) cookie doughs are still full of sugars and that is something I try and avoid. This... Read more →
