Mix applesauce and baking soda together and add to the last three ingredients.

Make small balls and flatten with fork. If dough is too sticky add a little more shredded coconut to mix.

Bake at 350 until bottoms are brown. (Times vary with different ovens).

This amount of ingredients will make a small batch of cookies. Double the recipe for more.

Add different ingredients to change the taste up...a little vanilla, cinnamon, or my kids favorite....cocoa powder.

These are also good as a "no bake" dessert. Omit the baking soda, roll the dough in really small balls and roll in shredded coconut. Place in the fridge and now you have a no bake dessert that is so wonderful.

Yes, thank you for noticing that. It is 1/4 cup.

kathy, these are great! This is a really good formula to work with.
here's what I tried differently. I used almond butter instead of peanut butter. and instead of a cup of coconut I used 3/4 gluten free flour mix(rice-tapioca-potato) and a 1/4 cup of coconut flour. it makes a really nice light biscuit like cookie. not too sweet, and it travels well!
