GLUTEN FREE PAPAYA AND COCONUT BREAKFAST COOKIES

A few weeks ago, I was visiting my sister and staying at her house for the weekend. After indulging on Friday night and Saturday on nostalgic Dutch foods and general catch ups over glasses of wine, I was feeling rather up for something healthy.. She then made us some lovely restoring breakfast cookies on Sunday morning. They were sweet, moist, warm out of the oven and absolutely delicious. I finished two immediately and she kindly packed one for me for the road. I have modified these a little to exclude walnuts (my little one does not react well to these) and to feature some tropical flavours. They are great for a breakfast on the go, and can also be made the day in advance.
