  • The cookies will be very soft coming out of the oven, but they’ll firm up after setting so make sure to allow the cookies to set for 10 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.

Notes

  • Whole wheat pastry flour: If you can’t find whole wheat pastry flour you can also use white whole wheat flour, a blend of all-purpose and regular whole wheat flour or just regular all-purpose flour.
  • Coconut sugar: White or cane sugar works as well. I haven't tried a liquid sweetener in place of the coconut sugar so I'm not sure how the cookies would turn out. 
  • Greek yogurt: I haven't tried a vegan yogurt substitute, but I would imagine any dairy-free yogurt would work just fine. 
  • Egg: I haven't tested this recipe with a vegan substitute, so let me know if you try this with a flax egg in the comments below!
