  • Summary

    This recipe is a bit more hands-on than some, but it's such a fun little project. If you want to simplify things, you can skip the "dipping the cookies in the chocolate" step, or not cut out a small hole in the center of the cookie (this makes for easier spreading of the coconut and caramel). I used coconut sugar in this recipe because it has a lower glycemic index than other less processed sugars. You can substitute the coconut sugar for sucanat.

    Ingredients

    • 2 cups almond flour
    • 2 tablespoons coconut flour
    • 1/2 cup organic coconut sugar or sucanat?
    • 1/2 teaspoon unflavored gelatin (I prefer Bernard Jensen or Great Lakes)
    • 1 teaspoon arrowroot flour
    • 3/4 teaspoon Celtic sea salt
    • 1 stick unsalted butter, cold, cut into tablespoons (or 6 tablespoons of cold coconut oil for Paleo)
    • 1/2 cup water?
    • 1 cup coconut sugar or sucanat?
    • 1 cup heavy cream or coconut milk?
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract?
    • 1 1/2 cups unsweetened flaked coconut, toasted
    • 8 ounces bittersweet chocolate, melted (I prefer Trader Joe's or Equal Exchange chocolate because they don't contain soy)?
    • 2 teaspoons coconut oil
