Its Cocoa-Coconut Cookies! Cocoanut Cookies!
I was hesitant as I started to make these- they didn't give me much hope as far as consistency goes but as soon as I got a taste- I couldn't help but have a second one! This is now my favorite Paleo treat. We love the coconut texture with the sweetness of the honey, almond butter and cocoa. Definitely the sweetest treat we've had since going Paleo!
Seriously, a MUST try! Quick and easy!
Prep: 10 minutes
Cook time: 5 minutes
Refrigerate: 25 - 30 minutes or Freeze: 15 - 20 minutes
Total: 30 - 45 minutes
1/3 cup honey
1 1/2 TBS cocoa
1/3 cup coconut oil or grass fed butter (ghee)
1/3 cup almond butter
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups dried, unsweetened shredded coconut
Put honey, cocoa and coconut oil (or butter/ghee) in a medium sized saucepan over medium-high heat
Bring mixture to a boil. Boil for 1 minute and immediately remove from heat
Stir in the almond butter and vanilla until smooth and fully mixed
Drop in your coconut- you can dump it all or a little at a time
Scoop spoonfuls of your cocoa coconut deliciousness on a sheet of wax paper or parchment paper
Put into the fridge until hardened and set. I put ours in the freezer for a faster hardening time- about 15-20 minutes
Keep them refrigerated and try not to keep them setting out. They will begin to melt/get soft!
|Ready to put in the fridge!|
-- All the best
