Gluten-Free Vegan Coconut Cookies-3Happy birthday #SundaySupper! I’d like to have you all over for tea! I think I figured out a perfect gluten-free tea cookie. Why do I think they are the perfect tea cookie? Because for once I made something that doesn’t slam your tastebuds and take names later. I even made them petite! So if you want a nice mellow cookie that happens to be gluten-free, this is your cookie.

Gluten-Free Vegan Coconut Cookies-2They are far from bland though, don’t worry. They just aren’t saturated in flavours that can take away from other foods or tea. I made them small and they were kind of crispy. We had them at a picnic at the park and while they didn’t stand out they also didn’t stand a chance on the blanket and got inhaled. We had beers, wine, mixed drinks and other beverages and people were all impressed that they didn’t punk out their tastebuds.
