In a large mixing bowl, add your coconut flour, almond flour, and granulated sweetener of choice. Mix very well. Stir through your syrup and mix until a thick dough remains.
Add your crushed cookies and using a tablespoon, add your milk of choice slowly until a thick batter remains. If the batter is too thick, continue adding milk.
