Coconutty Cookies (SCD & Paleo)

Coconutty Cookies
I love these cookies!  They are just perfect when you need a little treat.  Ok, everyday :)

I usually make these for myself without any sweetener.  I find I feel the best if I keep carbs and sugars to a minimum.  So without the honey, I can have a few of these and not put myself into a sugar high.
 OK, the kids won't eat them without sweetener, but I prefer them that way!
If leaving out the honey, you can add an egg to help bind.
