I have been making these twice a week lately. Everyone in my house loves them and they don’t last long! These are so easy to make and are definitely healthier.

  •  1/3 melted coconut oil 
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  •  1/2 cup of pure maple syrup 
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  •  teaspoon lemon peel (optional)
