Almond Toasted Coconut Cookies (Perfect Protein Snack!)My hubby and I had a funny conversation over these cookies the other day.  We have discovered we have completely opposite taste palettes.  I feel these cookies have a little sweetness, but not too much.  Hubby said they are not sweet at all.  Since these cookies are not very sweet, they really would make a perfect snack option.

Almond Toasted Coconut Cookies (Perfect Protein Snack!)The cookies are soft, chewy, and so delicious!  Maybe to add sweetness, you could drizzle some caramel, chocolate, or fruit puree.  If you want to add sweetness to the cookie, you could add sugar, or more maple syrup.  Personally I wouldn’t change a thing!
