First things first- these are SO.EASY.
( I stick to easy recipes, always. )
& the best part is – they are coconut, chocolate, and coffee flavored PLUS they don’t have all those bad ingredients in them!!! Like.. where can you go wrong?
I call them coconut MOCHA MOCHA macaroons because I double the mocha you should probably add. But hey.. life is about taking risks, right?
I mean if you read my blogs & you checked out my coffee bean scrub rave about rubbing coffee beans all over your body thennnn you probably get my coffee obsession.
Let’s be real though, it’s the best thing ever.
& these things have just enough mocha flavor with with a soft coconut bite and of course, chocolate on top just to top it off.
ALSO THEY ARE CHRISTMASY ‘AF’ ( if you will ) because you can always add white chocolate instead of the dark chocolate I used. Or put them on a plate with pretty red or green candies around it. Whatever your little heart desires.
But also perfect for any other party as well, so that’s that.
I found a similar recipe for these last year, but they had some extra ingredients and not that much coffee flavor.
So naturally I went for it and put my own twist on them to make them more like how I wanted them to taste. And BOOM.
Alright, let’s go.
2 tbsp COCONUT FLOUR
2 tbsp COCOA POWDER
4 tbsp INSTANT COFFEE POWDER ( I get mocha flavor )
2 cups SHREDDED, UNSWEETEND COCONUT
4 tbsp MAPLE SYRUP ( I use this healthy kind!!! )
1 1/2 cup COCONUT MILK
1 tsp VANILLA EXTRACT
DARK CHOCOLATE TO MELT ( or chocolate of your choice )
+ Preheat oven to 360 F
+ Combine 2 tbsp of coconut flour plus 2 tbsp of cocoa powder in a big bowl and mix them together
+ Add the 4 tbsp of coffee powder
+ Then add the 2 cups of shredded coconut – mix.
+ Add 4 tbsp of maple syrup, make sure it gets all in there
+ Add 1 and 1/2 cups of coconut milk
+ While mixing, pour in the 1 tsp of vanilla extract
+ Put the bowl of these mixed ingredients into a pot on the stove – cook on low heat until firm. You want it all to be cooked together so you can scoop them out without it being a mess.
+ Scoop them onto a cookie tray with a spoon, ice cream scooper, melon scooper, your hand.. whatever works. ( I used an ice cream scooper because it kept them together well )
+ Cook on 360 F for about 15-16 minutes. ( I always add an extra minute incase I want them crunchy )
+ While they are cooking, you can melt your chocolate in the microwave or on the stove.
+ Let them cool before removing them so they don’t fall apart. It really sucks when that happens. Believe me.
+ Line a plate with waxed paper, dip your cookies in the chocolate, and stick them on the wax paper plate.
+ Put them in the fridge or freezer to set.
I kept mine in the fridge over night and took them out about an hour before the Christmas party : )
EASY ENOUGH RIGHT?
& not a sugar overloaded cookie – win win.
Let me know how they turn out!
MERRY CHRISTMAS BABES
