Some cookies are cozy and comforting. It's true. I would argue a french macaron is not cozy, decadent yes, fancy even, or maybe a bit romantic. But not homey or cozy. I began calling thick chewy cookies full of loads of stuff cuddle cookies. Because that's what they are, they taste just like they sound! This recipe has lots of healthy ingredients like coconut, almonds and oats that make this cookie irresistibly soft, craggy, and delicious! And since this cookie is partially made with whole wheat flour and flax seed it takes the guilt factor down a bunch! Better still, they’re dairy free, so you’ll never have to worry if you’re out of eggs or want to lay off the butter. Try them as an on the go snack too! Or share with a friend, they're beget than a hug!
