so, I'm going to a family reunion today and wanted to bring a sweet treat along with my Asian zoodle salad. Found these yummy bites on www.healthysweets.com and they are delicious! I enjoyed sampling one with my breakfast protien shake! This recipe made 15 cookies for me.
INGREDIENTS (use organic when possible)
5 tablespoons canned unsweetened, full-fat coconut milk (stir before measuring)
3/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 teaspoon powdered stevia, which is equivalent to about 2 packets
1/8 teaspoon fine salt
1 cup (115 g) almond flour
1/2 cup (50 g) unsweetened shredded coconut
Preheat the oven to 350F; line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or a silpat liner.
Whisk together the coconut milk, vanilla, stevia, and salt in a medium bowl until smooth. Stir in the almond meal and dried coconut. Cover the dough and chill in the freezer for 5 minutes.
Scoop the dough out and roll into 1 tablespoon-sized balls. Arrange the balls on the prepared baking sheet about 1 to 2 inches apart, and use the palm of your hand to slightly flatten each ball.
Bake until the cookies are a very light golden color on the bottom but are still sandy colored on top, about 14 to 16 minutes, rotating the tray once.
Cool completely on the tray before removing and serving. Store layered between parchment paper in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 2 days, or up to 5 days in the fridge.
