Coconut date "cookies" are one of my favorites to bring to parties or feed my kids. Super quick and easy to make; they are always a crowd pleaser. Sweet and salty to your preference.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup shredded coconut
  • 8 dates (pitted)
  • 3 tablespoons chia seeds
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil (melted)
  • sea salt (to taste)

Note

Coconut date "cookies" are one of my favorites to bring to parties or feed my kids.  Super quick and easy to make; they are always a crowd pleaser.  Sweet and salty to your preference.

If there isn't enough moisture to keep the balls set then add a tablespoon or two of maple syrup.  The moistness depends on the dates and it varies batch to batch.

Directions

Step 1. Place everything in a mixer and blend till mixed but still a little chucky.
Step 2. Roll into 1-2" balls.
Step 3. Coat balls in shredded coconut if desired.
