Source of recipe: Raw treats are one of our favourite things to make because they are basically fool proof, ie. no baking. We love just making treats up as we go along, such as these cookies. They were originally based off our raw macaroon recipe, but since we added coconut flour, it made them more dense and cookie like. Basically, they were really really yummy, especially if you put maple-cinnamon caramel drizzle on top. These would be really good as Christmas cookies too.
