No bake Paleo Cookies

While I don't have a super sweet tooth, I will say that one thing I miss when dieting is desserts. Only once in a while, but when that craving comes over me, watch out. I usually give in and send tt down the street to DQ for a blizzard {note: I always get a mini, but it's still 1000 calories I'm sure}

I came across a bunch of Paleo cookie recipes. I am dying to try the chocolate chip cookies, but also found these which ultimately came out a little more like a candy bar than a cookie. I'm ok with it. 

No Bake Paleo Cookies
Original recipe from: sweettreatsbyshayna.blogspot.com

ingredients


1 cup coconut flakes
1 cup dark chocolate chips
1 cup chopped pecans {I used walnuts}
1/2 cup almond butter
1/3 cup raw honey
1/3 cup olive oil {I actually ran out of olive oil...gasp...so I used coconut oil here}
1 Tablespoon cinnamon

instructions


  1. Heat chocolate chips, oil, honey, and almond butter in a sauce pan on medium heat, stirring often. You will want to melt the chocolate chips until they are a smooth consistency.
  2. Turn off the heat and add cinnamon, nuts and coconut. Be sure to coat everything in the chocolate.
  3. Drop a spoonful on a parchment lined cookie sheet. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes or until hardened.

notes

  • Mine was super liquidy, even once I mixed the dry ingredients in. I'm wondering if this is partly due to using coconut oil in place of olive oil, but I don't see why that would happen. I don't bake- clearly, this is why. I mess up even no-bake cookies. Most of it ran together on the parchment paper, so I will cut it into pieces and eat as candy. Problem solved!
