Healthy Coconut Cookie

coconut cookie

1 1/2 Cup Fresh Coconut
1 Cup Pecans
1 Cup Dates (pitted)
4 Tablespoons Raw Honey
5 Tablespoons Coconut Oil
1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
3 Eggs

Pre-Heat over to 350
Coat baking pan or cookie sheet with 1 tablespoon of Coconut Oil
Blend Coconut and Pecans in food processor
Add Dates and blend
Add Raw Honey, 4 Tablespoons Coconut Oil, Vanilla Extract and Eggs and blend thoroughly

Spoon out bite size pieces onto Cookie Sheet
Cook for 15 minutes.

The other option is to eat uncooked or freeze.  They are great either way but I think they are best uncooked.
