Coconut Date Cookies

This is an easy to make recipe for Coconut Date Cookies.

And the best part is that it all begins with package Sugar Cookie mix.

These cookies will keep well for you in an airtight container for up to 5 days.

We don't recommend freezing them as the Whole Grain Total® cereal will lose it's crunch and the cookies will be much less interesting and enjoyable.

In addition to the coconut, our next favorite ingredient in these cookies is the chopped dates.

Dates are an important source of many dietary vitamins and minerals and contain lots of healthy fiber and have a very satisfying natural sweetness.

These coconut date cookies are perfect for sharing during the holidays - or anytime.
