These cookies are not overly sweet, so feel free to use more sweetener to taste. I used erythritol, but you can of course use normal sugar or xylitol. In place of the soy milk, you can use any dairy free milk. You can also use olive oil instead of the apple sauce. Instead of the coconut oil you can also use any other vegetable oil.
