Date & Coconut biscuits (Sugar- free)

My new favourite thing to do with my daughter is to bake biscuits & cookies. She loves it… it’s like Play Dough but she’s allowed to have a  taste and enjoy the results. Predictably her favourite word is now ‘cookie’ but I don’t want her to eat too many sweet treats.  The problem with most…
