Do you ever crave a dessert, but not a high-fat, processed sugar one? These cookies are the answer.


Not too sweet


Packed with heart healthy oats

Flavored with coconut flakes


No oils, no butter, no eggs, no processed sugar. Sweetened with maple syrup and apple sauce. These cookies are vegan and whole foods-plant based. Chose gluten-free rolled oats and oat flour for a totally gluten-free cookie.
