Vegan Breakfast Cookies

Sweet plump raisins, dark dark chocolate, and my new favorite combination of honey, vanilla and coconut oil.  These vegan breakfast cookies have a chewy goodness that's great for the morning.  They're not too sweet, and have a lovely layered flavor. Perfect for on the go too! Coconut oil makes them dairy free, and applesauce keeps them egg free.

I've used Baker's Chocolate which is totally sugar free, very dark and a tad bitter.  You may want to substitute with dark chocolate morsels or pieces.
