"Crispy on the outside and chewy in the middle, these sweet lemony cookies are naturally sweetened and lovely. Grain-free and gluten-free, they feature a mix of high protein and high fiber flours.  They are also vegan, featuring coconut oil instead of butter."

If Kim opened a bakery, I'd be there EVERY day. :)
