Might I tempt you with my Vanilla Macaroon Crunch Cookies?  What a treat partnering up with Nature Box for this special back to school cookie.  We have been loving all of Nature Box’s goodies that have been sent to us.  If you haven’t checked out their website, do it now, you get healthy treats sent right to your door monthly.  I just love this idea.  My boys open the pantry and see  healthy options.  Yes!!

I wanted to develop a back to school cookie that my boys would be thrilled about coming home to.  Let’s just say this one did not disappoint.

Here’s what you’ll need to make my cookies.  I used coconut oil instead of butter.  Wait until you see the texture of these cookies.  To die for!  You’ll also need Nature Box’s Vanilla Macaroon Granola.  A favorite in our house.

You’ve gotta try this Vanilla Macaroon Granola.  The best granola I’ve had.  Makes the perfect crunch inside my cookies too!
