Try this healthy and delicious breakfast cookies with dates, coconut, almond butter and dark cherries.
Perfect way to start your day!
- ¼ cup coconut flour
- ½ cup almond butter
- 6 pitted dried dates, soaked in warm water for 15 minutes
- ¾ cups shredded coconut
- ½ cup unsweetened applesauce
- 2 TBSP finely ground flaxseed + 5 TBSP warm water
- ½ TBSP cinnamon
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- ¼ tsp. salt
- ½ tsp. baking soda
- 2 TBSP dried unsweetened dark cherries
- 3 TBSP currants
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Whisk your ground flax and warm water in a bowl and let it sit for 5-10 minutes until it has thickened.
Combine the coconut flour, almond butter, and dates in a food processor. Process until well combined and the dates have broken up into really small pieces, about a minute.
Add the shredded coconut, applesauce, flax “eggs”, cinnamon, vanilla, salt and baking soda and process for 30 seconds until a wet dough forms.
Add in the remaining ingredients, and pulse once or twice until the fruit is incorporated into the dough but chopped up.
Using an ice cream scoop or large tablespoon, drop the dough in heaping spoonfuls onto a cookie sheet lined with a SilPat or parchment paper.
Dip a metal spatula in water, and use the bottom to lightly press down each ball of dough. These cookies will not spread or rise so make sure to make them the shape you want them prior to baking.
Bake for 12-15 minutes, until they are golden on top and slightly brown along the edges.
