Salted Caramel Coconut Cookies

This year I baked several types of Christmas cookies of which I made these vegan and gluten free Salted Caramel Coconut Cookies.  They were a nice addition to my usual cookies and I’m sure I will be making them again next year.   Funny how they were the first to vanish off the cookie plate!

Ultimate Vegan-GF Chocolate Chunk Cookies



So let’s say you have a friend, relative or maybe even an enemy that is Vegan and/or Gluten free.  And let’s say out of the goodness of your heart, you want to do something nice for them…like off the charts nice.  May I (highly) suggest that you make a batch of these truly amazing cookies.  I can’t make promises for your enemies loving you but it’s sure worth a try.   I will say that this cookie recipe is a wee bit pricier to make but I can’t recommend it enough!  They taste so amazingly good and you would never know that they are V&GF!  If you decided to keep all the cookies for yourself, I wouldn’t be surprised.

This is not an overly sweet brownie but you could add another ¼ cup of sugar if you like a traditionally sweeter brownie.
