Yesterday, I posted a distinctively not primal cookie recipe. Delicious, absolutely! But definitely something to be enjoyed only once in a great while – probably closer to 0.20% than 20%. This recipe, on the other hand, you should feel absolutely fine to make for every birthday, holiday, & celebration you’ve got going on. Why? Because it’s chock full of Real Food, like coconut, nuts, & deep dark chocolate. I suppose this could be a candy instead of a cookie, but frankly, I’m happier calling it a cookie. :)
» 2 cups unsweetened shredded coconut (the small, crispy ones)
» 2 cups roasted nuts of your choice (mine have hazelnuts, almonds, & walnuts)
» 1/2 teaspoon of salt, if nuts are unsalted, as desired
» 1/4 cup coconut oil
» 5 squares Baker’s Choice unsweetened baking chocolate
» 2 bars of dark chocolate, the deeper the better (I have one bar of 90%, one bar of 85%)
» 1/2 cup nut butter of your choice (I made do with almond butter, but I think they’d be simply scrumptious with macadamia nut butter)
» Foil-lined cookie sheets
» Small ice cream scoop (I use one similar to this)
How to do it:
01 Mix together coconut, nuts, & any salt in a big bowl, then set it aside.
02 Melt the coconut oil in a big pot on low heat, then begin adding chocolate. Constantly stir this yummy concoction until everything is melted together.
03 Thoroughly mix in nut butter, then turn off the heat.
04 Stir in your coconut/nut mixture, then allow to cool for a few minutes.
05 Scoop small balls of the goo onto the foil-lined cookie sheets, then freeze until solid.
06 Eat one. Savor it. Eat another one.
07 Store in the fridge. I imagine these would last a very long time, but also can’t imagine how they could. They’re too tasty!
