So I started off with, of course, coconut. Guess I don’t cook with coconut enough because my girls asked me what it was. I promptly gave them a little bowl and had them eat it raw. They liked it!
Next a little whole wheat flour.
A little milk. I loved that there were bubbles that didn’t pop.
Some honey. The original recipe called for Agave but I only had honey, we have a honey store a mile away where the honey is fresh and wonderful. We stay stocked up on honey. The girls love to go to the store, they buzz all day after we go. I like supporting a local company and I like having fresh honey.
Some coconut extract which I think the cookies needed more of.
Mix it all up.
I was a little worried when it got to this point, didn’t look like it was going to turn into cookies.
No worries, just put it in the microwave for a few minutes and it thickens.
Once their thick put them on a greased cookie sheet and bake. You’re welcome to top them with chocolate or not. I liked the little extra sweetness.
