No time to bake? These low carb and gluten free maple no bake coconut cookies can be cooked in the oven or left unbaked. Made with healthy almond flour and coconut oil.
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 recipe for no bake coconut cookies. The original recipe used real maple syrup which is really high in carbs.
I modified the recipe to use Walden Farms no calorie maple flavored syrup instead. It’s low carb pancake syrup that’s sweetened with Splenda and has zero carbs.

After receiving a comment about baking these no bake coconut 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!
