Fudge filled coconut cookies with just 5 simple, easy to find ingredients.
Ingredients (8 cookies)
  • 2 cup finely shredded coconut
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup unpasteurized honey
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • Preheat oven to 350F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or silicon baking mat.
  • Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and mix until combined.
  • Grab about 1/4 cup of mixture with hands and press together, flattening out like the mud pies you may have made as a kid with the mud in your backyard (I swear these cookies will taste better!)
  • Place on prepared baking sheet and bake for 15-18 minutes, or until golden. Mine were perfect at 15 minutes.
  • Egg free: replace 2 eggs with 2 flax eggs – 2 tbsp finely ground flax seed mixed with 6 tbsp water. Cook for the same amount of time just be careful when removing from the pan as they’re a bit more fragile.
  • Vegan: use egg-free option above and use date syrup or rice syrup instead of honey.
