Coconut Chocolate Cookies-Healthy!

dairy-free, soy-free, gluten-free, flour-free, sugar-free coconut chocolate cookies

Cookies that are good for you, AND, you can eat them for breakfast. These are dairy-free, gluten-free, wheat-free, cocoa-free, flour-free, oil-free, soy-free and sugar-free, but you wouldn’t know it because they are sweet, moist and chocolatey.

These treats taste like chocolate macaroons, but without any oil, cocoa, or sugar. I used carob powder to give it a sweet chocolate flavor. Since carob doesn’t have any caffeine, unlike chocolate, you can eat these at night too. I used raisins, and only two tablespoons of honey for sweetness. You don’t even bake these, just mix, press into balls and refrigerate.

  • 1 cup dry toasted oats
  • ¼ cup carob powder, level
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
  • ½ cup almond butter, creamy, unsalted
  • ¼ cup SoDelicious plain coconut milk beverage
  • 2 T honey*
  • 1/3 cup Hunza raisins or mini chocolate chips

Mix dry ingredients, oats, carob, and coconut flakes, in a medium-sized bowl with a spoon. Add almond butter, coconut milk and honey. Mix a few times with the spoon. Add raisins. With clean gloves, knead ingredients together until completely incorporated, to make a large dough ball. Pinch off about 2 large tablespoons, to make a large ball. Repeat until you have 12 cookies. Place in a covered glass container and refrigerate. Can be eaten right away.

*If you want to make this vegan, use agave, but honey works best because it’s stickier and holds the dough together well.
