Coconut cherry cookies

Yum! I recently got my hands on some dried cherries (thanks mom!) and was planning on creating some date bars. But, coconut flakes were calling me-so onward with cookies! These cookies are sweetened with a little raw sugar, agave, banana, and applesauce, making your tummy happy and not feeling sleepy or sick like some desserts can do. I personally have a sweet tooth, if you haven’t figured that out by now, so being able to eat massive amounts of cookies without feeling guilty is right up my alley.
