Lemon Bliss Cookies

Hey, everyone! Week 2 of being vegan is going swell and today I want to share one of the first recipes I made when I went vegan. I’ve always had a major sweet tooth so trying to cut refined sugar out of my diet has been a struggle. I’ve attempted to do it before but to no avail. I’m here to tell you that these bliss cookies will absolutely satisfy your sweet tooth. They’re also super easy to make!

I was inspired by Forks and Knives Lemon Bliss Balls for this recipe. You can find the original recipe here. (https://www.forksmealplanner.com/?kmi=bTtN2WReJ8c2QTxkfTFcC5B5weU%3D#!/recipe/320/lemon-bliss-balls)

I just substituted some of the ingredients for cheaper alternatives!
