How to make raw coconut cookies?
Those coconut cookies are no bake cookies with coconut oil. Coconut oil is the magic ingredient that hold raw cookies together. In fact, coconut oil solidify below 23C which give all the texture to those no bake vegan cookies. Let’s have a look at the simple ingredients you need to make those macaroon cookies.
- Unsweetened desiccated coconut
- Almond flour or almond meal, both work well in the recipe but for a lighter color I recommend blanched almond flour
- Coconut oil – feel free to use refined coconut oil if you don’t like the strong flavor of unrefined coconut oil
- Liquid swetener – I love to use either maple syrup or sugar-free monk fruit syrup to make the keto coconut cookies. It is up to you to choose the swetener you prefer. Other option are coconut nectar, brown rice syrup or agave syrup.
- Lime juice – or simply water or coconut water if you don’t like the flavor of coconut lime together
- Dark chocolate- 70%-85 dark chocolate bars are vegan including some sugar free stevia sweetened dark chocolate. If unsure check ingredient list for no milk or dairy.
Flat coconut cookies or coconut balls!
You can shape those cookies the way you like! They also make beautiful no bake coconut cookies balls for Christmas cookie platter. Simply skip the flattening step, dip your no bake coconut balls into the chocolate and you will turn this into an amazing chocolate covered coconut balls recipe!
Play with the flavor : coconut lime, vanilla coconut and more!
The recipe use 3 tablespoons of liquid and any liquid will work. I recommend using lime juice as coconut lime is the magic flavor. However,you can also try coconut wter to enhance the coconut flavor or unsweetened vanilla almond milk for a vanilla coconut cookie.
