    WE WERE NOTICING THAT IN YOUR GLUTEN FREE SUGAR COOKIE, THE MEASUREMENT FOR THE COCONUT SUGAR READS, “3/4 NUTIVA ORGANIC COCONUT SUGAR”…….THERE IS NOT AN ACTUAL MEASUREMENT (I.E. CUP, TBLS, ETC). WE ARE ASSUMING IT IS “CUP” AND NOT 3/4 OF A BAG. COULD YOU PLEASE CLARIFY THIS? THANK YOU AND HAVE A WONDERFUL CHRISTMAS AND A HEALTHY AND HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

    1. Nutiva Team Nutiva says:

      Hi Melinda! Thanks for pointing our our error! The measurement is meant to be “3/4 cup Nutiva Organic Coconut Sugar.” Have a great day!

    I’m a vegan. Pretty disappointed that Nutiva gives a coconut-sugar-cookie recipe with eggs. How to make this VEGAN?

    1. Nutiva Team Nutiva says:

      Hi, Clarice! We are sorry to hear of your disappointment. Unfortunately, when you use that much Coconut Flour, it is hard to completely replace the egg. Many times, you can substitute the egg for a chia and/or flax egg, but in this case, it will likely not work since the recipe calls for 1/2 c. Coconut Flour. We try to include as many Vegan recipes as possible, but not all our recipes are 100% Vegan, 100% of the time. We hope you understand.

    Hello. The title of this recipe states…”With Coconut Icing”. When I look at the recipe for the frosting it calla for “powdered sugar”. I just want to make certain that is correct. Do you mean powdered coconut sugar or the regular one made with granulated white sugar?

    1. Nutiva Team Nutiva says:

      Hi, Holly! The regular one:)
