Happy New Year!
Hope everyone's new year is full of good things...purpose, happiness, health contentment and stuff like that.

To help you along in that direction, here is my creamy cold coconut cookie recipe. We think it's a delicious and healthy recipe, even for you odd-ball health eaters (like us).

The cookies are easy and fast to make. The hard part is getting all the ingredients together...might require a trip to the co-op. Anyway they are an attempt to put all sorts of good things in them and take out most of the bad things and still have them taste good. We think creamy cold coconut cookies taste great, have wonderful mouth feel and go a long way toward sating hunger. Think of them as healthy granola bar, only good for you.

Hope you enjoy them as much as we do.
Live long and prosper,
Greg

Creamy Cold Coconut Cookies


These cookies are not baked and served cold, like fudge. The coconut oil holds them together and makes them melt in your mouth, and in your hand. They are really good with hot coffee.

 

Creamy cold coconut cookies are great for anyone on a Ketogenic diet, being grain free and extremely low in sugar and carbs. We find them to be a delicious healthy snack that satisfies the craving for sweets or carbs, for anyone working to eliminate bad carbs from their diet.


Ingredients: 

1 part cashews

1 part almonds

1 part walnuts

1 part pumpkin seeds

1 part sunflower seeds

1 part chia seed

1 part hemp hearts (seeds)

1 part flax seed meal

1 part almond flour

1 part coconut flour

1 part coconut chips

1 part 70% cocoa chocolate chips

1/2 part cocoa

1 part raisins

1 part dried cranberries (you may substitute any dried fruit, as long as it's not sweetened)

1/4 part cinnamon 

1/16 part nutmeg

1/16 part nutritional yeast (vitamin Bs)

1 to 2 teaspoons stevia (one of the few healthy sugar alternatives)

1/4 part vanilla 

1 1/2 parts coconut oil


Assembly Directions

Mix all dry ingredients in a big food processor with the angled chopping blade in place. Mince the ingredients till they are a fine homogenous mixture. 


Warm the coconut oil in a double boiler till melted (his won’t take much). Drizzle the oil into the running food processor containing the dry ingredients. The ingredients should form a slightly oily dough in the food processor. It should stick together when you make a snow ball out of it.


Sprinkle coconut flakes onto a work surface. Grab a handful of cookie dough and form a pancake with it, Press it onto the flakey work surface and shape the patty flat and round and about 13/32 of an inch thick.


Sprinkle coconut flakes into the top surface of the shaped dough and press the coconut into the dough. With a cookie cutter (I use a short piece of 1 1/4” copper pipe) cut cookies out of the dough and deposit them into suitable container for freezing or refrigerating. The coconut flakes should keep cookies from sticking together.  Serve the cookies cold.


Enjoy and share with friends!

I will definitely be making those delicious sounding cookies very soon. Thanks for creating it and sharing, Greg.

Wanted to remind/invite folks to tonight's Sustain Jefferson meeting where the edutainment will be about the launch of the Glacial Heritage Solar Group Buy, being spearheaded so far by the MREA. This is a way to spur solar investment in the county by using volume discounts to bring down the costs for everyone. It also harnesses the power of convenience (Americans dig convenience).

Thi learn more, attend at 6:30 tonight, (Weds, Jan 3) at the UW Extension office, 864 Collins Road, Jefferson. Let's get carried away on hot sunshine in the cold moonlight tonight.

In the spirit of promoting renewable energy and all the talk right now about group buys, I created a write-up on how I designed and installed my own solar array. It includes the full budget and lots of other information.
