Creating desserts doesn’t always require baking or prolonged hours in the kitchen. In fact, some of my favorite desserts are raw, like these Raw Chocolate Coconut Cookies. They were ready in 10 minutes or less.
I was experimenting making different kinds of nut milks at home. From Almond Milk, to using Walnuts or Pecans, and Cashews. Using a ration of 1:3 (nuts/water) for nuts with skin, and 1:2 for white nuts. When I found myself out of nuts and milk I opted to use shredded dried coconut. Coconut Milk has a delicious creamy texture and natural refreshing vanilla taste. I highly recommend you try this recipe at home. I blended about 1.5 C of Shredded Coconut with 3 C of Water, 2 Dates, 1 Tsp of Vanilla. After blending the milk I filtered it using a cloth coffee filter. I put my milk away in the fridge and decided to use the left over pulp to create some kind of Raw Dessert; these cookies!
Raw Coconut Chocolate Cookies
– 1 C of Coconut Pulp
– 1 C of Almonds grounded into flour
– 4-5 Dates
– 1/2 C of Raw Cacao Powder
Blend all ingredients in food processor. Then, scoop out dough and create the desired shape for your cookies. Place in freezer for 1 hour.
For the Chocolate Drizzle mix 1/4 C of Cacao with 1/4 C of Coconut oil.
Dunk the cookies or drizzle chocolate with a spoon! It just occurred to me, I could’ve added some mint too! Have that in mind if you are planning to recreate these yummy raw goodness.
