|Chocolate Chip Coconut No-Bake Refrigerator Cookies|
These are my go-to treat for my littles! They're so easy, I usually always have the ingredients on hand, and they LOVE them!
They requested a treat for this weekend, and since they had regular ol' glutenous pie last weekend-- sorry, but I just couldn't resist the urge to bake one when we had a guest. Shame on me! Wink, wink.-- I decided to go a healthier route this weekend.
Why are these great?
1. Two words: No. Bake.
2. No refined sugar, dairy or grains.
3. They're really yummy.
Ok, need I say more? Oh, yes...I need to say the recipe! Here ya go!
Chocolate Chip Coconut No-Bake Refrigerator Cookies
1/4c nut butter
1c coconut oil
1.5 c coconut flour
1 c unsweetened shredded coconut
1/2 c pure maple syrup
1/2 bag enjoy life chocolate chips
Melt down coconut oil & nut butter. Add maple syrup & mix all three together well. In large bowl mix dry ingredients. Add oil mixture to dry ingredients & mix well. You should have a cookie dough consistency. Grease a small cookie sheet (with sides) or casserole dish with more coconut oil, or line it with wax paper. Pour mixture into pan & press down until it reaches all sides. Put in the refrigerator (away from the light) to harden. Once hardened you an cut into bars, or use a round cookie cutter like it did (just save the extra bits & pieces and sprinkle them on some coconut milk ice cream, if you dare). If you wish to let it soften a bit before cutting, let it sit on the counter for a couple minutes. Store cookies in the refrigerator away from light-- those fridge lights put off a lot of heat, even when not on. I learned that the hard way with a melted glob of refrigerator chocolate!
Serve with some almond milk or coconut milk ice cream & ENJOY!
