1 tbsp flour of choice (or protein powder)

1 tbsp cocoa powder

1 tsp instant coffee powder

1 cup shredded, unsweetened coconut (not low-fat)

1/2 cup plus 2 tbsp milk of choice or canned coconut milk

3 tbsp agave or pure maple syrup

pinch stevia or 1 more tbsp agave or maple syrup

1/4 tsp pure vanilla extract

just over 1/16 tsp salt

melted chocolate chips or healthy chocolate sauce, for dipping

 

Combine all ingredients except chocolate chips in a tall dish. If using a microwave, heat two minutes. Stir, then microwave one more minute or until firm enough to scoop out into ball shapes. (Or cook on the stovetop until it’s firm enough to scoop out.)

 

Scoop into balls on a cookie tray—I used a melon baller, but a spoon or ice-cream scoop will also work. Bake at 360 F for 14-16 minutes. 

 

Chocolate sauce recipe (instead of choc chips)

4 tablespoons (60g) virgin coconut oil

1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon (52g) cocoa powder. (For a sauce, decrease to 1/4 cup)

1/4 cup agave OR you can use nunaturals vanilla stevia drops (I use 10 vanilla drops, but if you don’t like super-bitter chocolate, triple that amount)

 

Dip each cookie in melted chocolate, place on the wax paper, and refrigerate or freeze to set. Makes 12-22 cookies, depending on the size cookie scoop you use.
