Recipe Comments & Reviews

These were a huge hit at a family pool party. Had several requests for the recipe, and turns out we were not the only GF family there so they were appreciated even more! I spinkled sweetend coconut flakes on top of half the batch, and those went first!
I made these just for me, but I took some

taste like they were gluten free and I have
celiac disease, everything I eat needs to be
without gluten. Everyone wanted the recipe.
