Butterscotch Coconut Crunch Cookies

20140409-230517.jpg

It’s not every day I use butterscotch in my baking. For one, it’s not vegan. And two, I find it way too sweet for my liking. However, my dad is quite fond of the flavor and when I saw this recipe, I thought I’d be the delightful daughter that I am and whip him up a batch. The cookies turned out really well. I modified it slightly and you can certainly tweak it to your liking. Feel free to sub the egg for a flax egg (1 tbls ground flax+3 tbls water) and/or chocolate or carob chips to make the dessert vegan friendly.

Enjoy!
