Bake or “No Bake” Maple Coconut Cookies

It’s always nice to have a quick snack to grab when you feel a little hungry. I like to keep a variety of cheeses and meats in the refrigerator for quick bites. Sometimes, I am craving something a little sweet. While browsing some coconut recipes, I found a no bake cookie recipe. The original recipe used real maple syrup which is really high in carbs so I used some Walden Farms no calorie maple flavored syrup instead which is sweetened with Splenda and has zero carbs.

After receiving a comment about baking these cookies, I figured I’d give it a try. Turns out they are just as good or better after baking in a 400 degree F oven. You can eat them either way, but I prefer them baked to toast the coconut. Thanks for the comment Brenda!
