These cookies are perfect for the holiday season! You could bring them to your next Christmas party and no one would even know they are healthy (I like to call it stealth health)! These cookies are packed with healthy fats, fiber, vitamins and minerals…what a deceptive little cookie ;) To make them even more exciting they take less than 10 min to make and will store for weeks!
I highly recommend these for chocolate mint fanatics, like myself. Just make sure to spread out the extract well, if it doesn’t get totally mixed throughout the other ingredients it can be really strong tasting. If you’re not a big mint fan just skip the mint extract or replace it with a different flavored extract instead.I bet coconut or orange would be good!
Raw Dark Chocolate (Mint) CookiesMakes 12 cookies Slightly modified from Radiant Health
- ½ cup raisins
- ½ cup raw almonds
- ¼ cup raw cashews
- 3 tablespoons raw cacao powder
- 1 heaping tablespoon liquid honey
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- 1 teaspoon mint extract (replace with a different flavored extract if preferred, or omit)
- ⅛ teaspoon salt
- shredded coconut
Blend all of the ingredients, except the coconut, in a food processor until the mixture is in fine crumbs (it will start to clump) and is very sticky. Remove heaping 1-tablespoon bits of the mixture, form into balls and roll in the coconut.
Store in the refrigerated in an airtight container. They will keep for several weeks…but be gobbled up before then!
