These cookie type biscuits are gluten free and dairy free, deliciously light and very soft they almost have the texture of cake not a crispy biscuit but they are amazing moreish all the same. They have an almost buttery taste and texture with the crisp crunch of coconut thrown in. They won't be in the biscuit tin for long!
