vegan almond butter cookies


it’s cookie season!!


well, cookie season never ends but for a majority of us it kicks into high gear throughout the holiday season.


and as fun as the holidays can be, it’s also a well known time of the year that can sabotage the best of your health and wellness goals. not to be all debbie downer but this is a conversation i often have during coaching sessions, and it’s become a fun place to strategize.


together we create a personalized plan of action to maneuver the ins and outs of holiday socializing. each plan allows space for enjoyment and being merry but also requires discipline so that all the hard work that’s been done to this point is not wasted.


this season i’ve doubled back to an old cookie RAWcipe i love making on my dehydrator but this time, we’re using the oven so they’re done in 15-18 minutes and not 34-36 hours. these turned out perfectly soft on the inside with a little crunch on the outside–just how i love them.


…THEN they were dipped in a raw vegan chocolate.


vegan almond butter cookies

2 cups unsweetened shredded coconut

1 cup medjool dates, pitted

1/4 cup almond butter

1/4 cup maple syrup

1/4 tsp sea salt (optional)

preheat oven to 375.

place all ingredients in a food processor and process until a gooey ball forms.

line a cookie sheet with unbleached parchment paper.

scoop roughly 1TB of dough at a time and place evenly spaced on parchment paper.

use a fork to lightly press an ‘X’ on each cookie and place in the oven for 15-18 minutes. remove and allow to cool.

next, whip up a batch of dairy-free chocolate sauce and once the cookies have cooled significantly dip each in the chocolate sauce. place the dipped cookie back on the parchment paper and cool in the fridge or freezer for chocolate to firm.

because the chocolate sauce uses coconut oil, which is susceptible to heat, i store the cookies in the fridge or freezer. remove 10-15 minutes prior to serving.

makes 14-15 cookies.
