You can use extra virgin olive oil in place of the coconut oil, however it will give these biscuits a mild olive oil flavour.

If you prefer, you can use half pure maple syrup and half honey.

If you can source them, mini chocolate chips are ideal in these biscuits. You can also use sultanas instead of chocolate chips.

You can store these biscuits in the pantry in sealable container for up to 1 week.
