The best thing about raw vegan cookies is that you never have to worry about eating the dough! These Lemon Coconut Cookies are one of my favorite raw vegan sweet snacks when I’m in a hurry. They only contain 7 ingredients and they are really easy to digest. You can even make them nut free by replacing the almond flour with coconut flour.
