There’s nothing quite like having a good snack in the house and what’s better than having a snack that uses real ingredients!
As part of my 2019 intentions, I’m (slowly) trying to wean out packaged snacks and focus on making real-food snacks at home.
I’ve been buying Koukla Delights, which are delicious, but I wanted to create something that I could easily make at home.
Enter Coconut Almond Cookies!
This is a wonderful and satisfying little cookie to snack on throughout the week (if they last that long) and they only have four ingredients!
Coconut Almond Cookies
- 1 cup + 1 tbsp Shredded Coconut
- 1/2 cup Raw Almonds
- 2-4 tbsp Maple Syrup Depending on how sweet you’d like them!
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.Process the coconut and almonds in a food processor until really fine.Add the vanilla.With the processor running, drizzle in the maple syrup until mixed.Using a tablespoon, scoop out the dough and roll into balls. Gently press down just to get the bottom a bit flat so they’re not rolling all over on you!Bake for about 10 mins. They’ll come out a bit soft but will harden as they cool Note! These are great raw too so if you don’t fee like baking, eat them raw!
