No Bake Thumbprint Cookies

 

It’s always fun to try a new, healthy cookie recipe! Today I have a recipe for you that is simple, wholesome, tasty and doesn’t even require an oven.

 

These cookies are made with unsweetened coconut flakes, raw honey and coconut oil. All three main ingredients are filled with vitamins, minerals and usable, real food calories. It’s a little surprising how awesome these taste too!

What you need
Servings: 16

2 cups shredded unsweetened coconut
⅓ cup raw honey, melted
¼ cup coconut oil, softened
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
¼ teaspoon sea salt
Toppings: dark chocolate, fresh raspberries, fresh strawberries, almond butter, large coconut flakes, chopped nuts

Instructions

1. In a medium sized bowl, combine the shredded coconut, raw honey, coconut oil, vanilla extract and sea salt. Place in the freezer to chill for 5 minutes. This step is important to help get the cookies to stick together well. Coconut oil hardens as it chills and helps to bind the cookie together.

 

2. Shape the dough into 1 Tablespoon-sized balls. Press into a cookie shape, with an indention in the middle. If you have trouble keeping your dough together, or if you simply want a very sturdy cookie, then melt another ¼ cup of coconut oil, then drizzle the oil in the center of your cookie. Place in the freezer for 10 minutes. Now you’ve got a sturdy cookie!

 

3. Choose your cookie toppings. Fill the thumbprints with your favorite toppings. Enjoy!
