- 1 egg
- 1/3 cup coconut oil, melted
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

This recipe can also be made into bars:
- Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a large rectangular baking dish with a piece of parchment paper (with overhang) so the bars are easier to remove.
- Follow Steps 2-3 above.
- Spoon the mixture into the prepared dish. With lightly wet hands, smooth out until even and uniform. Press down on the dough until compacted.
- Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, until firm and lightly golden along the edges.
- Once cool, slice into bars. Leftovers can be wrapped up and stored at room temperature for up to a week. *Try to avoid storing in fridge or freezer as they may dry out.
