I know I've mentioned my sweet tooth issues before, which ultimately leads to recipes like this one and this one. The problem is, Steven isn't much of a sweets guy. So every time I find a sweet treat to bake I'm left with the task of eating every. single. bite. all by myself! I know, I know, the HORROR.
Okay, so I definitely don't mind that...but I'm thinking my waistline might in a few years. So while I'm pinning away I try to find healthier dessert options (preferably loaded with massive quantities of chocolate), and ladies, find one I did! If you're a fan of chocolate and/or coconut this recipe is a must try! It is a completely dairy-free, gluten-free, refined sugar-free snack! There is even an egg-free and vegan recipe option.
And it's soooo simple! See this little cookie? It only requires 5 ingredients and packs a lot of flavor!
Here's what you''ll need. (Makes about 18 cookies)
- 4 cups finely shredded coconut
- 1 cup cocoa powder
- 1 cup unpasteurized honey
- 4 eggs
- 4 tsp pure vanilla extract
Preheat the oven to 350. Combine all the ingredients in one large bowl and mix together until well combined. Scoop about 1/4 cup of the mixture and flattening it out on the baking sheet like a mud pie. Bake for 15-18 minutes.
I honestly think these cookies are my new favorites! They have a no bake, moist texture and a rich chocolate flavor with a delicious coconut kick! Perfection, I tell ya, perfection.
