All of this rainy, cold weather made me think of a recipe I made not too long ago for my little siblings. My older sister and I were babysitting them, and I thought a sweet treat would be fun to make and eat for us! I love this recipe because it uses maple syrup instead of sugar, dairy free, and it is sooo easy and fast to make. I bake a lot, and out of all the doughs I’ve made, this was the softest, easiest, and best to work with! The recipe I originally based this off of, out of Jennifer Katzinger’s book Honey & Oats, was called animal cookies, but I didn’t have any animal cookie cutters and so I made Christmas and easter shaped ones! Of course you can make them any shape you want, even just using the mouth of a cup. The blend of maple syrup, cinnamon, nut butter, and coconut oil, may sound different than most recipes, but trust me, these are some of the best cookies I’ve made! Being light and fluffy, and having the perfect amount of sweetness, and the perfect texture, I’m sure you will love these as much as I do! They are perfect with a glass of milk or tea. This is a wonderful whether you are making these for a fun activity for your kids, or a cold rainy day to bundle up and watch a movie! To see this recipe, go to “Hope’s Recipes” and scroll down!
