  • 2 tbs maple syrup
  • 2 tbs shredded unsweetened coconut


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

  • Add the flour mixture to the wet ingredients, and mix until all the flour is incorporated.
  • Drop by heaping tablespoon onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake for about 12 minutes, or until the cookies are set and the bottoms are lightly browned.
