Coconut obsession? Macaroon obsession? Cookie obsession? Three is a magic number (as you can see in my photo). Feed all 3 of your obsessions in this ONE treat. Most of my family members are coconut obsessed. This recipe goes out to my Aunt G, for I know she loves her coconut.

  • 1 c. almonds
  • 1 c. oats
  • 1/3 c. coconut flour (or almond flour)
  • 3/4 c. shredded coconut or coconut chips
  • 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. sea salt
  • Optional add-ins: raisins, chocolate drops, chocolate chips, walnuts, pecans.

(Wet)

  • 1 Tbsp. coconut milk (or cream)
  • 1/2 Tbsp. coconut oil
  • 1 flax egg (1 T  flax seed + 3 T water, put in fridge while combing dry ingredients)

How to (cookies):

  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 F.
  2. Blend together almonds, oats, coconut flour in a food processor.

  6. Fold in any of the optional add-ins.
  7. Drop a spoonful of the mixture onto a greased cookie sheet.
  8. Bake for 10-12 minutes.

How to (Chocolate drizzle): 

  1. While the cookies are in the oven, combine cacao powder, coconut oil and honey together in a small bowl with a fork.
  2. Drizzle with a spoon over the cookies.

 

*Note-I have made this using buckwheat oat groats and blending them to make a flour. If you enjoy the flavor of buckwheat, you can use this to make nut free.

      One of my favorite combos ever! To size them I just scoop the mixture into the baking sheet using a small spoon. Bon appetit!
