These guilt-free cookies are low in calories but high in flavor.
Makes about 20 cookies
|1 cup NOW Real Food® Raw Brazil Nuts*|
|1 1/4 cup (plus extra for rolling) NOW Real Food® Organic Unsweetened Shredded Coconut*|
|1 1/2 Tbsp. NOW® Organic Pure Maca Powder*|
|3/4 cup (packed) soft Medjool dates (about 7 or 8), pits removed|
|1 Tbsp. NOW Real Food® Organic Maple Syrup*|
|1 Tbsp. NOW Real Food® Organic Vanilla Extract*|
|1/4 tsp. sea salt|
- Grind all ingredients together in a food processor until a coarse dough has formed.
- Form the dough into balls, about a tablespoon at a time, and roll exterior in extra coconut.
- Flatten into cookies and serve. Kept covered, cookies will last several weeks.
Checking the dough consistency: Pinch the dough and make sure that it sticks together, but still crumbles like a cookie. If the dough is too dry, add water, a teaspoon at a time, until the dough sticks together. If the dough is too wet, add spoonfuls of extra coconut until the dough is just right.
