Coconut Cookies With Cashew Chocolate Centers

Yummiest of cookies.
One of my favorite Instagram accounts is BestOfVegan.  They highlight other vegan IG users and share beautifully photographed, mouthwatering recipes if folks use their designated #bestofvegan hashtag. The Road to Health and Happiness's recipe for Coconut Cookies caught my immediate attention. After all, I had been pining away, missing the unforgettable taste of Girl Scout's very popular Samoa cookies. Used to order more than one box of addictive treasures- bad I know.
Still, these here coconut cookies are a plus to anyone's jar! Feel free to add a teaspoon of vanilla- I completely forgot to put it in the batter, but they turned out pretty tasty without it. Plus, next time I;'m thinking of inserting coconut extract for extra oomph! For the Cashew Chocolate, I have a huge crush on So Delicious's Cashew Milks and have been including them a lot lately- just gives that nuttier kick that enhances sweet appeal, especially for these cookies!
Today, I consumed more, discovering that they're even more amazing chilled. I had them refrigerated overnight and came home needing cookie comfort.
Mmmmhmmmm! Perfect with a good dairy free milk alternative!
