This breakfast cookie recipe is very versatile. You can change up your ingredients to your family’s liking. Some ideas would be to add pumpkin seeds, cashews, walnuts or pistachios. Dried fruits could be raisins, apricots, cherries, or even one of my favorites, blueberries.
One ingredient that I feel adds a special zip to these vegan cookies is using Nutiva Organic Coconut Oil with Butter Flavor. It’s non-GMO, steam refined from sustainably farmed coconuts. I stumbled across one day while shopping, and now use it in many of my vegan recipes.
