Paleo Pumpkin spice coconut cookies

Today I was in the mood to do some recipe testing. It's Sunday so baking was the perfect afternoon activity to indulge in! 

These PALEO pumpkin spice coconut cookies turned out moist and delicious! I'm pretty happy with the end result. I may have added a bit more honey and/or sweetener substitute, but other then that they were great! Good luck & enjoy! (& yes i do realize that they turned into more "ball" shapes then cookie shapes!) lol
