Recipe Notes

If you're looking to make these a little healthier and don't mind a slightly less sweet version I sometimes like to replace all the all-purpose flour in this recipe with additional whole wheat flour and replace all the sugar with coconut sugar.

Another option, if you have an allergy to gluten, is to use a gluten free flour blend that you've worked with before and know replaces wheat flour measure for measure well.
