Almond Coconut Delight Cookies

Today I was in the mood for something sweet, chewy and warm…only a cookie was going to satisfy my craving. I didn’t want anything too rich or chocolately but more along the oatmeal raisin type of cookie…I don’t eat oats anymore so that chewy texture is sometimes a challenge to achieve in a cookie but this recipe does the trick perfectly!

These cookies are so easy to make and you can adapt them to your liking very easily.  I used coconut oil and coconut nectar but you could use any oil (or even butter) for the fat and agave, honey or yacon syrup could be used for the sweetener.  Walnuts and raisins are always my choice for nuts and dried fruit but again you can substitute your favorites without any problems…

Almond Coconut Delight Cookies

Coconut Delight Cookies

Makes about 16 cookies

Ingredients:

1/4 cup coconut oil (or oil of your choice)

1/4 cup coconut nectar (or agave, honey, palm sugar or yacon)

1 tsp. vanilla

1 1/4 cup almond flour

1/4 tsp. sea salt

1/4 tsp. baking soda

1/2 cup chopped nuts (I used walnuts)

1/2 cup shredded coconut, unsweetened

1/4 cup dried fruit (raisins or cranberries) or dark chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 F.  In a large bowl combine oil, sweetener and vanilla, set aside.  In a medium bowl combine almond flour, salt, baking soda, nuts, coconut and dried fruit or chocolate chips.  Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and mix throughly.  Drop by rounded tablespoon onto a parchment lined cookie sheet and slightly flatten.  Bake for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown around the edges.  Cool on a wire rack and serve.

  3. I just saw this recipe on SS&GF. I have all the ingredients in my kitchen, so this will be a perfect treat to make on this gloomy day! I haven’t made cookies in ages because they are simply not healthy, but these sure are more healthy. Can’t wait! Thanks.

  4. Grandkiddies coming tomorrow and they like to bake with me…have all the stuff for these cookies…thanks much!

  5. What a great recipe. We keep coconut around here at all times for yummy little treats like these- I will have to try them soon!

  6. OMG, these are awesome! My kids are thrilled and say they are better than “regular” cookies. They want to make sure they are added to the Christmas cookie list. Thanks so much for a fantastic recipe!

  7. I was soo happy when I read this recipe. I just finished a candida diet and want to introduce sweets that I can enjoy but are still healthy and can candida diet approved. also, I have two kids so this is perfect for them. I tried to make these, but the dough was not sticking and had a hard time making them into cookies. I still baked them but they became crumbs. :(
    any tips for me? I dont want to give up on them. I can’t wait to eat these.
    thank you.

    Hey lady,
    I was perusing through facebook and ran across a post and found your blog. These cookies look great! I am going to try them this weekend. I have been on a quest to get healthy for the last year and have lost almost 80 pounds. I recently decided that I was going to go to a vegan diet so my way of thinking about food is totally different than what I have know my entire life. I feel like I am learning to cook all over again. I know it is worth it and I am feeling great. The hardest part for me was not giving up the meat… but the dairy. I have found many substitutes that work well. I hope to loose another 20 pounds between now and the end of the year. Its nice to see healthy treats that I can make for the family…They will not feel so deprived. I have flipped the entire house upside down so we will see how it goes.
