Nutty Chocolate Coconut Cookies

... my new obsession.

Nutty Cookies
Nutty Cookies

These are good. I mean real good-really rich and nutty. Sure, they're full of (good) fat, but they are good for ya, I say.

Nutty Chocolate Coconut Cookies
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Combine in a bowl:
1/2 cup almond butter
1/4 cup Sucanat or natural brown sugar
1/4 cup honey
3 tablespoons coconut oil
1 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
1/2 cup chopped raw walnuts (or pecans!)
dash of sea salt
1/2 cup mashed dark chocolate chips

Mix all of that together, then mix in 1/2 cup coconut flour (I used almond meal, turned out great, just falls apart easy!).

Form the dough into one inch balls. Place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for 15 minutes, or until tops are golden brown.

*Sorry, I can't remember where I got this recipe! I wrote it down, but didn't save a link...

Mmm, these make me feel dreamy...am rustling around in the cupboards now, hunting for chocolate, foraging through baggies to ferret out some coconut. A sudden baking attack...

These look wonderful! I love a good cookie that isn't full of saturated fat.
