The coconut cookie cups are a perfect pair with some good vegan ice cream, and the best part is they are pretty healthy! Since these yummy things are gluten free, they are made with coconut flour. This was my fist time using coconut flour and I have to admit I was a bit nervous. I scoured through numerous recipes online to find the perfect one for me. I finally came upon one that looked great, but it needed to be veganized! I was pleasantly surprised how yummy they were. The coconut flour gives them a wonderful light flavor and a great texture. Hope you’ll love them as much as we did!
