Raw Chocolate Cookies [with Coconut Pulp]

Raw Coconut-Chocolate CookiesVegan Recipe01

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!

  1. I followed your recipe, using 4 dates but my cookies didn’t set up in the freezer, they stayed crumbly. What did I do wrong? I still have what I mixed up, should I add another date for moisture?

    • Hi!

      When using dates it can get tricky cause the different size and kind of dates. You could’ve used Noor dates, and I think I used Medjol. Or for example the dates could’ve been dried or not as meaty. The dough has to be moist indeed but not runny. Try adding a Tsp of Water at a time. You have to be able to mold the dough with your fingers so use the water to achieve the right consistency or use the coconut milk.

      Also, was your pulp moist or dried when you used it for the cookies?

      For a tip, I like soaking my dates in water before I use them.

      Hope that helps! ;)
