I'm still on my sugar free/cacao free cleanse, and happy to say that I'm going strong! I've had this cookie recipe to post for months and figured that since Sweetly Raw has been so quiet, it's time to present something on the sweet side.
I use nourishing raw butter in this recipe - Check out this post including a mint vanilla square recipe, if you want to know WHY raw butter.
Raw Chocolate Chip Cookies
1/4 cup raw butter, softened
3 tablespoons raw honey
2 tablespoons melted coconut oil
1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
Pinch of salt
2/3 cup ground, dried coconut
1/2 cup macadamia nuts, ground
goji berries, dried cherries, hemp seeds, etc
Mix together the butter, honey, oil, vanilla and salt until smooth, by hand or in a food processor.
Fold in the coconut, nuts, and cacao nibs and/or goji berries.
Spoon the dough onto a parchment paper or seran wrap lined tray (or plate), and chill. They'll firm up in no time.
Here I pressed a dried cherry into the top and left out the cacao nibs.
Here's another great cookie I came up with, also a few months ago while I was on my raw butter/low nut/coconut sugar kick. These are packed with good stuff, and especially full of coconut.
Coconut Butter Cookies
Mix together all but the coconut flakes, by hand or in a food processor. Fold in the coconut flakes.
Spoon onto parchment paper lined plate/tray and chill. The cookies will firm.
