No Bake Chocolate Chip Cookies (paleo, vegan)

What's better than chocolate chip cookies that you don't have to bake? Not much, I tell ya. These aren't ooey gooey like your typical chocolate chip cookies, but they sure are tasty. They're one of my faves. I make them often and loooove them. I hope you do, too!

Sharing now in case you want to whip them up for an extremely low-maintenance sweet treat for an upcoming holiday party!

No Bake Chocolate Chip Cookies

Makes 10-12

  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut (unsweetened)
  • 3/4 cup blanched almond flour
  • 1 heaping Tablespoon coconut oil
  • 3 medjool dates, pitted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon very coarse ground sea salt
  • 1/4 cup dark chocolate chips (I use Equal Exchange)

Put coconut in food processor and whaz until it gets crumbly. Add almond flour and whaz to mix. Keep it going a little while so the mixture isn't super gritty. Add coconut oil, and mix until well blended. Then add the next 4 ingredients (don't add chips in yet)! Once that's all mixed up, then add the chips. Pulse a few times until they're dispersed throughout.

Roll into heaping tablespoon-sized balls. You can keep them as balls, or press your thumb into the top to make thumbprint cookies. Add an extra chocolate chip into the thumbprint. Keep refrigerated.
