No-Bake Paleo Cookies
Are you are in love with cookies yet too lazy to go through the tedious job of making a batch
Here comes a no-bake version of cookies witch scores high in the yum category, yet calls for minimal efforts – a perfect combo to keep you hooked.
The no-bake cookies wander around the borders between a cookie and a truffle. They have a playful crunch, thanks to the coconut shreds yet appear gooey and soft with very bite – a feature hardly present in baked cookies.
More to it, you can hardly go wrong with these no-bake cookies! While you don’t need to keep a watch on the cookies to prevent them from turning brick-hard, the chances of ending up with sloppy cookies are also less, due to use of cacao powder instead of melted chocolate chips. Simply shape the cookies, leave them in the fridge and forget until your sweet tooth craves for a bite.
Now it’s time to splurge in their divine flavours!
- 2 cups shredded coconut, unsweetened
- 1/3 cup almond butter
- 1/3 cup honey
- 1½ tbsp cacao powder
- 1/3 cup coconut butter
- 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
Place the coconut butter and honey in a medium saucepan and sprinkle the cacao powder over them.
Heat the mixture over moderately-low flame until the coconut butter melts, add a splash of pure vanilla extract and stir into the hot mixture, along with the almond butter, until the latter softens and blends into the mixture.
Empty the shredded coconut into the mixture and stir until well combined.
Drop small spoonfuls of the cookie mixture onto a parchment or any other grease-proof paper, spaced apart, then refrigerate until they are set and have hardened.
Pop them in your mouth whenever you feel like snacking.
